Redskins cornerback Josh Norman thinks the NFL should look a little more like the United States government. 

Norman told the Associated Press recently that he thinks the NFL needs a change in leadership. 

“Simple: Get the people who are in there out. Whoever's making the rules, just get `em out. We have a new president; have a new NFL commissioner.”

“The game has been this way for 100 years. Why are people in the (league) office trying to change it? What are you trying to make better? Why touch the game? ... Change the staff. We changed the president; let's change them, too,” he added. “There should be a number of years you can run it. There should be a term limit in the NFL.”

Roger Goodell has been commissioner since 2006 and is one of just three men to hold the position since the NFL-AFL merger. His predecessor, Paul Tagliabue, served from 1989 to 2006, and Pete Rozelle was in office from 1960 to 1989.
