The Associated Press is reporting that the NFL was sent the Ray Rice video last April by a law enforcement official.

The official sent the video to the NFL and was confirmed by a twelve second voicemail that was sent from the NFL official back to the law enforcement. The female NFL official stated in the voicemail that she was thankful that the video was sent and that "you're right, it's terrible."

Roger Goodell and the NFL have repeated that they have not received or viewed the video even as of today. The NFL immediately released a statement regarding the Associated Press news.
