Verizon Backs NFL’s Goodell, Plans to Help on Domestic Violence

National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell is a man of “very high integrity,” the head of mobile-video partner Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ) said, pledging to help the league develop a program to combat domestic violence in the wake of the Ray Rice controversy.

The mobile-phone company has a leading domestic-violence awareness program that Goodell’s NFL is seeking to emulate, Verizon Chief Executive Officer Lowell McAdam said today at a conference in New York. Verizon’s team is meeting with the NFL on the matter, McAdam said.
