Today’s Outside the Lines (2:30 p.m. ET, ESPN) will devote its entire show to a one-on-one interview with NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith.

Host Bob Ley’s discussion with Smith will cover: the New England Patriots’ “Deflategate” and quarterback Tom Brady’s appeal; Commissioner Roger Goodell’s power as dispenser of NFL discipline; Goodell’s relationship with Patriots owner Robert Kraft; Smith’s relationship with Goodell; NFL’s personal conduct policy.

Highlights of the interview will also be aired and debated on ensuing SportsCenters and ESPN NFL programming (NFL Insiders 3 p.m., NFL Live 3:30 p.m.).
