    NFL says hacker posted false tweet that Roger Goodell died
    1:12 PM ET

    The NFL said its Twitter feed was hacked Tuesday after a tweet was posted announcing that commissioner Roger Goodell had died.

    The tweet, which was deleted minutes after it was posted, said "We regret to inform our fans that our commissioner, Roger Goodell, has passed away. He was 57. #RIP"

    A screengrab of the tweet that the NFL said was posted by a hacker. Twitter Brian McCarthy, the league's vice president of communications, confirmed on his owner Twitter page that the league's account was hacked and said that Goodell "is alive and well."

    Shortly after the original tweet about Goodell was deleted from the league's official account, two other tweets the league said didn't come from their office were posted on the page. Those tweets also were deleted.

    That's too bad. Would have been the best news I've heard in a long time.

    Bernie Eccleston would be nice to see die as well

    I don't wish death on anybody, but I freaking hate this guy. A snake oil salesman.

    No doubt in my mind that it came from a Brady supporter
