    The walls are closing in on the most powerful man in sports.

    There are sharper questions for commissioner Roger Goodell after the Associated Press reported the name of the NFL executive to whom a law enforcement official allegedly sent a tape of Ray Rice hitting his then-fiancee in a casino hotel elevator.

    Jeffrey Miller, the league's head of security, was the reported addressee, according to the AP.

    "I mailed it anonymously to Jeff Miller because he's their head of security," the anonymous law enforcement official told the AP. "I attached a note saying: 'Ray Rice elevator video. You have to see it. It's terrible.' I provided a number for a disposable cell phone and asked for confirmation that it was received.
