Just weeks before the NFL season is set to kick off, it appears that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is trying to make the most of his "off-season" by relaxing in Vacationland. The notorious league boss was spotted at a few spots in Scarborough, Maine, over the weekend, doing very normal person things for a guy who seems larger than life.

Shared on Twitter by TVTeddy, Goodell was spotted purchasing a few items at Hannaford and stopping at a couple more local hotspots before likely retiring to his multi-million dollar mansion near the Black Point Inn in Scarborough. Goodell being spotted in public wouldn't be a big deal, except he's held an incredibly low profile for the past several years thanks to his ruling against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots over "Deflategate", perhaps the single dumbest, lack-of-proof 'scandal' in professional sports history.

According to Bleacher Report, the Brady suspension handed out by Goodell led to a fiery response from Patriots fans, who began taunting Goodell anywhere and everywhere he could be found. That included his posh mansion on Prout's Neck, where a displeased fan spent time and money to have a banner flown by plane around the normally quiet area. Police watched over Goodell's home for weeks until the bubbling anger of Patriots fans had finally subsided.

With the Patriots and Tom Brady going their separate ways and the emergence of a new quarterback in New England, perhaps Roger Goodell feels like he can mix in with the people again, especially in Maine. He's probably right, as long as he avoids the "green peppers" guy.
