Two names are being floated around as potential replacements for Roger Goodell.
Goodell has served as the NFL’s Commissioner for 15 years and will be 64 years old this year, which is the age at which his predecessor Paul Tagliabue decided to retire.
The league’s head hasn’t shown any indication as it pertains to calling curtains on his career but there has been speculation over who could step in to replace him once he chooses to leave.
ProFootballTalk revealed a pair of names they heard being mentioned as potential candidates, namely Kevin Warren and Condoleezza Rice.
Warren is the new Chicago Bears president while Rice is a minority owner of the Denver Broncos who is also a former U.S. Secretary of State. The former has worked for three NFL franchises since 1997 and became the NCAA’s Big Ten Commissioner in 2020, though his tenure can’t be described as great.
Rice, meanwhile, has served as a member of the College Football Playoff Selection Committee. Of course, she has invaluable political experience, which would come in handy should she ever become NFL Commissioner. But there’s also the fact that, at 68, she’s already older than Goodell.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
