NFL investigators also are seeking to interview other potential witnesses and are gathering other information, people familiar with the case have said. League officials hope to be in position soon to determine whether to place Brown on paid leave via the commissioner’s exempt list. The NFL opted last week not to make a decision on that issue before this weekend’s games.
An attorney for Taylor declined to comment on the scheduling of the meeting.
Multiple people familiar with the case have said it remains possible that the NFL will place Brown on the exempt list, which would make him ineligible to play for and practice with the Patriots, and that the league hopes to make its decision soon. It’s not clear, however, whether the decision will be made this coming week.
Brown has not been charged with a crime. However, the NFL’s personal conduct policy empowers Commissioner Roger Goodell to place Brown on the exempt list if he believes that the policy may have been violated.
The league-owned NFL Network first reported that the meeting with Taylor had been scheduled for Monday.
