Roger Goodell has weighed in on the NFL Twitter account's hacking with a joke. 

The commissioner of the league, who was announced dead in the initial hacked tweet, took to Twitter himself this afternoon. 

"You leave the office for one day of golf with (former Buffalo Bills' quarterback Jim Kelly) and your own network kills you off," he tweeted. 

">@JimKelly1212 & your own network kills you off.

The NFL has gotten law enforcement involved and is increasing its cyber-security measures in response to the hacking, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

The Twitter user responsible for the hacking has apparently been identified.
