NFL’s Twitter account hacked, said commish Roger Goodell died

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has not passed away — despite what a tweet from the NFL’s account may have led some to believe.

The league’s Twitter account was hacked on Tuesday with a message saying, “We regret to inform our fans that our commissioner, Roger Goodell, has passed away. He was 57.”

The NFL confirmed that its account had been hacked and that Goodell is alive and well.

The message has been deleted, but the hacker continued to toy with the account, sending more tweets mocking the NFL.
