Roger Goodell Sent Eli Apple's Mother Brownies After The NFL Draft

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell isn't the most well-liked person in sports, for a multitude of reasons. But the mother of at least one recent draftee likely has a soft spot for the man after a recent gift was sent her way.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Eli Apple's mother, Annie, was disappointed with the dessert spread at the draft this past weekend in Chicago. Goodell apparently sent her a delivery of brownies this week to make up for it. Apple was taken by the New York Giants in the first round.
