NFL executives predict Robert Kraft will avoid suspension from soliciting prostitution matter

Earlier this week, Judge Leonard Hanser postponed Robert Kraft's trial for soliciting prostitution indefinitely so the prosecution can appeal his decision to suppress video evidence, which allegedly shows Kraft receiving sex acts in exchange for money at the Orchids of Asia day spa.

This came following the ruling of the video being obtained illegally. The video evidence is almost all of what the prosecution has against Kraft, so now many believe he will ultimately win the case.

The next shoe to drop is any potential discipline from the league, and two NFL executives speaking to Albert Breer of MMQB believe Kraft will not be punished.

“No, nor should he be,” a NFC executive said to Breer.

A NFC owner backed the executive up.

“I’d be pretty surprised if he was,” the owner said.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said this week the league is conducting its own investigation.
