A video from that game shows Vitt telling defensive players on the sideline that Favre was out with a broken leg following a vicious hit. Hargrove is shown turning to teammate Bobby McCray and saying, "Hey, Bobby, give me the money."
Hargrove was flagged and subsequently fined $5,000 for a flagrant hit on Favre, who returned to the game.
Several other players' names appear in the evidence, including safety Roman Harper and linebacker Scott Shanle. Neither was punished by Goodell because those players were not linked with any intent-to-injure hits.
Pash explained why the majority of the evidence from the NFL's investigation has not been revealed.
"It takes a lot of courage for people to speak up," he said. "If people want to disclose something ... whoever it is — player, coach, former employee, staff member — asks for protection, some sort of confidentiality, we ought to give it to them.
"Otherwise, people will not be willing to come forward."
