With the NFL playoffs set to begin this weekend, commissioner Roger Goodell sent a letter to the league’s fans, assuring them that the owners and players will be able to come to an agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement.

“I know we can and will reach an agreement,” Goodell wrote. “My goal as commissioner now is to help our teams and players find a solution that is fair to everyone and ensures that football becomes more popular, accessible, and fun. We want the next decade to be the best yet for our fans, and I’m ready to work day and night to make that happen.”
