Joe Thomas: Goodell 'scurried off the stage like a rat' at Super Bowl

Joe Thomas joked prior to the Super Bowl that watching his friend, Atlanta Falcons center Alex Mack, lose the big game would be worth it to see commissioner Roger Goodell hand the Lombardi Trophy to the New England Patriots.

The Cleveland Browns left tackle got his wish, as New England prevailed and Goodell was forced to present Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and Robert Kraft with their fifth Super Bowl trophy.

During a Thursday appearance on "PFT Live," Thomas said he enjoyed watching every moment of the postgame ceremony.

"I especially enjoyed how overeager Roger was to smile at all the Patriots and give them a big handshake, but then as soon as he gave them the trophy he scurried off the stage like a rat," Thomas said, according to Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk. "It was awesome."

The 10-time Pro Bowler hasn't been shy about expressing opinions on Goodell and the league recently, saying he finds himself caring less whether people have issues with him as he gets older.
