Goodell, 47, the league's chief operating officer, is the front-runner among five finalists as voting starts today, on the second day of owners meetings here.

That came little more than a month after Goodell suspended Tennessee cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones for the entire season, and Cincinnati receiver Chris Henry for half of it.
