An independent investigation led by Robert Mueller determined that the NFL was deemed to have never previously seen the Ray Rice in-elevator video. Per ESPN:


"We found no evidence that anyone at the NFL had or saw the in-elevator video before it was publicly shown. We also found no evidence that a woman at the NFL acknowledged receipt of that video in a voicemail message on April 9, 2014," the report said.
The report also said that the NFL failed to:

• Contact police officers who investigated the incident, the Atlantic City Prosecutor's office or the hotel to obtain or view the in-elevator video.

• Ask Rice or his lawyer if they would make the tape available.

• Follow up with the Baltimore Ravens to determine if it had additional information, following the league's initial contact with the team.

In response to the report's findings, a joint statement was released by New York Giants president John Mara and Pittsburgh Steelers president Art Rooney II.
