The Cincinnati Reds are the team on the field at this time of the year but off the field, the Cincinnati Bengals are in the spotlight.

The Bengals' wide receiver Chris Henry will have a meeting with the league's CEO Roger Goodell.

Henry is in New York to meet with the commissioner to talk about his off-field conduct and disciplinary issues. Over the last year and-a-half, Henry has faced drugs, weapons and drunk driving charges in three states.

Fellow wide receiver, T.J. Houshmandzadeh talked to Henry as he was headed to the airport and said that he sounded a bit nervous but was ready to face the music.

"I think he's learned from what he's done and the negative publicity he's gotten for it," said Houshmandzadeh during an open locker room session.

Houshmandzadeh was one of the players who helped Goodell draft the new player conduct policy and hopes that it helps and doesn't hurt his team who was at the focus of the new rules, "It's gonna be what it's gonna be you know. Hopefully it won't hurt us too much as a team."

Goodell said that he expects to have a decision on Henry within ten days of their meeting. The Bengals' website suggests that Henry's suspension could be anywhere from four to eight games.

The details of the new policy are expected to be released before the NFL draft which takes place at the end of April.
