NEW YORK (AP) -- Former Patriots assistant Matt Walsh will meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on May 13th to discuss New England's videotaping of opposing teams.

The NFL had been negotiating for two months with Walsh, who has indicated he has further information regarding Spygate.

Goodell fined Patriots coach Bill Belichick $500,000 while the team was fined $250,000 and was stripped of its first-round draft choice for taking video of New York Jets coaches on the sideline during the 2007 season opener. But the specter of what information Walsh might have has hung over the matter since the Super Bowl, when Walsh reportedly said he had other tapes.

The league says the agreement with Walsh, who now works as an assistant golf pro in Hawaii, will allow him to "share with the NFL information about activities occurring during his employment with the club from 1997-2003."

Walsh also will be required to return any tapes and other items in his possession that belong to the Patriots.

The Patriots say they expect the Goodell-Walsh meeting to end the Spygate investigations.

The team has released a statement saying it is "eagerly anticipating his honest disclosures to commissioner Goodell next month and the return of all the materials he took during his time of employment."
