NFL's commissioner Roger Goodell spoke by telephone with Newton about the Carolina quarterback's concerns over not being protected by game officials from hits when in the pocket, a person who familiar with the situation told The Associated Press.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy declined comment Personalized Vikings Jersey. On Sunday Newton criticized league officials after Carolina's 30-20 win over Arizona, saying that he doesn't feel safe in the pocket because officials are treating him differently than other QBs in the league by not throwing flags while he takes an illegal hit.
