Watch: Roger Goodell runs 40-yard-dash inside offices in 5.53 seconds
While the NFL Combine is officially underway in Indianapolis, commissioner Roger Goodell toed the line inside the league’s New York offices, running a 40-yard-dash for charity.
Rich Eisen, of NFL Network’s annual Run-Rich-Run charitable campaign, encourages fans to run a 40 at work — in work attire — and upload video or post it on Twitter with the #RunRichRun and #StJude tags.
To my eye it looks like Goodell lumbers a bit (though yes, he’s wearing slacks and loafers) but somehow he clocked in a very unofficial 5.53 time, which is a solid click better than the 6.10 by New York Giants 2014 second-round pick Weston Richburg, an interior offensive lineman.
Eisen himself will run the dash on Sunday and because you can bet on absolutely anything, you can pick a side: one sportsbook has set the over/under on Eisen’s time at 6.08 Seconds.
