Roddy White Probably Not Soon To Become Roger Goodell's Agent

Sunday night, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White deemed Nicki Minaj's Grammy performance "terrible" via Twitter before later backtracking and admitting he just didn't get it. (Which is cool, because nobody else got it either). Something tells you he'll also have to reframe this argument a little at some point soon:

How in the hell can u pay a man this much money that cant run tackle or catch RT @ProFootballTalk Goodell will get $20 million per year by the end of the decade http://wp.me/p14QSB-10JA

Roger Goodell is getting over never seen anything like it 20 million for looking over the league with tremendous help I guess the NFL is banking.

I assume Roger Goodell knows how to run, as he appears reasonably fit, and he can probably catch things that are thrown at him. He may or may not be able to tackle, but he's at least got decent size.

The funny thing to me: people get worked up about athletes making nine digits per year, but don't even realize the many, many other parties who also make elite salaries. Yes, Goodell is absolutely banking.
