Silver says he's staying put.
Adam Silver has been a fairly successful commissioner for the NBA and according to ESPN, owners in the NFL have taken notice. Per their sources, some NFL owners have even approached Silver about the possibility of switching sides and replacing Roger Goodell as the commissioner of the NFL. Despite the invitations, Silver is saying that he plans to keep going with the NBA and that he hasn't been paying too much mind to his rumored recruitment.
"I'll just say I have not given it any thought. I feel very fortunate to be in this position. As a longtime fan, as a longtime league employee, the opportunity to become the commissioner of this league was beyond anything I even ever dreamed of as a kid. I've loved every day I've been in this job, and I think there's nothing but enormous opportunity ahead for this league. And ultimately, I realize I'm just passing through like every player who's gone through this league and ultimately like every owner, and I feel an enormous obligation to the fans and to this greater NBA family to do my best and try my hardest every day. But that's where 100 percent of my focus is."
Seeing Silver crossover to the NFL would be an interesting development. Silver seems to be more pro-player when it comes to activism, so a Silver-led NFL could be positive. Although for now, it doesn't seem like that's really in the cards.
