Richardson on players council

Vikings fullback Tony Richardson has been named to a six-member players council that will advise NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on player conduct and a variety of other issues.

Jacksonville Jaguars safety Donovin Darius, Indianapolis Colts center Jeff Saturday, Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Takeo Spikes, Washington Redskins wide receiver James Thrash and free-agent cornerback Troy Vincent round out the group, which met with Goodell for the first time on Tuesday.

"It is important that we know the perspective of players on issues that impact our game and our league," Goodell said in a statement. "We all share the same goal of improving the NFL in every way we can. Veteran leadership if critically important for our teams in many areas. These outstanding veterans can help the entire league just as they help their teams."
