NFL account hacked, tweets Roger Goodell died


NFL account hacked, tweets Roger Goodell died

The NFL’s Twitter account was hacked and tweeted that Roger Goodell died...

Uh, what!? Before the tweet was deleted it read, "We regret to inform our fans that our commissioner, Roger Goodell, has passed away. He was 57. #RIP"

The hacker wasn't done though. They tweeted, "Oi, I said Roger Goodell has died. Don't delete that tweet," though the NFL quickly deleted that one too.

By this point Adam Schefter sent out a tweet verifying that Goodell is indeed alive and breathing, so the hacker admitted this was obviously just a prank.

"OK, OK, you amateur detectives win. Good job," the hacker tweeted.

We all knew it was a fake from the start though. Roger Goodell is already dead on the inside, so he can't die ... right?

Report: Patriots special teams ace Slater visiting Steelers

Patriots seven-time Pro Bowl special teamer Matthew Slater is in Pittsburgh on Saturday making a free-agent visit to the rival Steelers, according to an ESPN's Field Yates.

Slater, who turns 33 in September, has spent the past 10 seasons in a New England. The special teams captain and one of the leaders in the locker room signed a one-year, $1.8 million contract extension in 2016.

The Patriots lost special teamer Johnson Bademosi to the Texans in free agency on Friday but signed special teamers Brandon Bolden and Brandon King just before the free agency period began.

Brady tests his 'Brady Bunch' knowledge on NPR

Tom Brady has been making the media rounds lately with "Good Morning America" and "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" appearances this past week to promote his "Tom vs. Time" series and TB12 Method book. On Saturday, Brady was a phone-in guest on NPR's "Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me" for their "Not My Job" segment. 

Before a mostly cheering live audience in Hartford and after a discussion of the benefits and drawbacks - mostly drawbacks - of tomatoes and strawberries, plus an assessment of the intelligence of most defensive coordinators, Brady settled in to handle three questions about the world's second-most famous Bradys, the family from the classic sitcom - "The Brady Bunch".
