Commissioner Roger Goodell's draft chair on display in Canton

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's draft chair won't sit still. It's spending the summer in Canton.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced Friday that Goodell's leather armchair is on display for the next four months after again playing a starring role in the draft.

The item debuted in Goodell's basement during 2020's virtual draft, with the Commissioner announcing several picks and making himself as comfortable as can be in it. Last week, the chair made the trek from Bronxville, New York to Cleveland. On Day 1 of the draft, fans were welcomed to sit back and relax in the chair while their favorite team was on the clock.

Goodell's chair is now located 60 miles south, available for the entire public to see in person. All 32 draft cards from this year's first round are also on display. More than 160,000 people attended the three-day event, which produced the third highest television audience in draft history.

Tune in to the 2021 NFL Schedule release at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday, May 12, on NFL Network, NFL.com and the NFL app.
