'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

DALLAS — NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said this weekend's bargaining session with the players' union was "beneficial."

In an interview that aired the morning of the Super Bowl, Goodell called drug testing a key issue in labor talks. Goodell said a number of players and owners participated in a two-hour meeting Saturday, the first formal bargaining session since November. The labor deal expires in March.

"It's always a positive when both parties are talking," he said.

Outlining major sticking points, Goodell talked about revenue division, rookie salaries and benefits for retired players.

"We want to continue on with the integrity of the game, which is my No. 1 issue," he added, speaking of "making sure we have the best drug program in sports."
