Don't get your hopes up with that title. Of course "sources" on twitter are claiming Roger Goodell will announce his resignation, but don't start the party yet folks. In all likelihood, it is exactly what the "media advisory" says it is. I'm sure it's a PR move for  the NFL, and probable also in response to many questioning Mr. Goodell's absence of late. Here is the release in it's entirety.
