According to Steve Wyche of NFL.com,  when Vilma refers to “phase 2,” he’s talking about the players possibly challenging the investigation and Goodell’s authority to rule against the players in a court of law.

If any cases get to court, the lawyers that represent the players may be able to gain access to evidence and witnesses that they weren’t able to get to before.
