WATCH: NFL commissioner Goodell runs 40-yard dash in a suit

March 5 2018 6:16 PM

Roger Goodell was watching the NFL Scouting Combine and heard NFL Network host Rich Eisen call him out.

Eisen, who has run a 40-yard dash in a suit and tie at the combine every year since 2005, turned his annual sprint into a charitable campaign to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. 

Using the hashtag #RunRichRun, Eisen's dash has raised over $300,000.

When Eisen wondered if Goodell would run a 40, the NFL commissioner responded on Monday and said he would complete his dash down the hallway on the fifth floor of the league's New York headquarters.

Eisen's best time came in 2016, when the 48-year-old broadcaster ran the dash in a time of 5.94 seconds. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said Eisen "should be nervous" that the 59-year-old Goodell would beat his time.

The warning was well-founded when Goodell posted a time of 5.41 secs and called it a "piece of cake."

Eisen's 40-yard dash will come later on Monday after the defensive backs go through the final rounds of workouts at Lucas Oil Stadium.
