Throwback Thursday: Read a Letter From Job-Seeking Roger Goodell to NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle


It's hard to imagine, but once upon a time Roger Goodell was just a kid looking for a job.

In a tweet by Darren Rovell, we get to see how Goodell's career in the NFL came to be. In 1981, a 22-year-old graduate sent a letter to the NFL commissioner at the time, Pete Rozelle.

Goodell did end up with an intern position, but it's unclear whether this was the letter that led to it.
