Drew Pearson, who was booed by fans in Philadelphia when he announced a draft pick on behalf of the Dallas Cowboys, says Roger Goodell encouraged him to troll fans.

Pearson says he decided to egg the fans on and when he ran it by Goodell, the commissioner encouraged him.

"I'm thinking he might say, 'Oh, no, don't say anything like that, that might get them too fired up, might cause a riot out there in that crowd.' But to my surprise, he encouraged me to say that and to get the crowd even more riled up," Pearson told PFT Live.
