Saints quarterback Drew Brees has never been shy about his distrust of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. In April, soon after a federal appeals court restored Tom Brady's four-game Deflategate suspension, he said Goodell's ability to serve as "judge, jury and executioner" has been a "black eye" for the NFL and that "he definitely has too much power."

Brees and teammate Zach Strief doubled down on Monday, saying the NFL's declining TV ratings can all be attributed to 345 Park Avenue.

"We feel like [the decline in TV ratings] is a direct result" of the mistrust people have for Goodell and others at league headquarters, Brees told ESPN's Mike Triplett. "I know the players don't have any faith in the way that things are conducted within the front office in the NFL - certainly when it comes to any type of investigation, when it comes to any type of commissioner discipline. It's really kind of a joke at this point, unfortunately. And it shouldn't be like that."
