NFL Commissioner Says Kobe Bryant Will Be Honored in “Respectful” Way at Super Bowl

Late, great NBA legend Kobe Bryant will reportedly be honored by the NFL this coming weekend at the Super Bowl. “I don’t think just Los Angeles is mourning the loss of Kobe Bryant,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Wednesday at a pre-Super Bowl press conference. “We as a league have been very responsive and I think respectful of somebody who contributed so much to sports.” Goodell then also mentioned NFL Hall of Famer Chris Doleman, who died of brain cancer this week at the age of 58, and said, “I think both of those individuals will be seen on Sunday in some fashion in a respectful way.” Since Bryant’s death this past Sunday at the age of 41, the NFL held a moment of silence for him at the 2020 Pro Bowl last weekend, just hours after his death on Sunday.
