Roger Goodell expects timeframe on Wells' report release 'will not be long'

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell was a guest on "CBS This Morning" on Tuesday and was interviewed by host Charlie Rose.

Rose asked Goodell when Ted Wells will be releasing his report on underinflated footballs.

"He has not been given a timeframe. I expect it will not be long," Goodell answered.

A bit more of the Q&A:

Rose: Why is this hard?

Goodell: Well, I think it's hard because you wanna make sure you have all the information. It's not just...

Rose: It's one game, one ball.

Goodell: The question is, one of the things that he would be asked to look for is, was it just one game?

Rose: Is there any suspicion that it wasn't one game?

Goodell: There's no suspicion of anything. What we're trying to do is just make sure we're thorough. The most important thing here is, was there a violation of the rules? And if so, how did that occur?

Rose: When do you expect his report?

Goodell: I don't expect it other than I do think it'll be soon. We have a responsibility to the 32 teams -- not just to one team, to 32 teams -- and our fans, and the general public here to make sure that things were done fairly.
