John Madden is back in the NFL as an unpaid "special adviser" to commissioner Roger Goodell.

The league announced Thursday that Madden, who retired as a broadcaster earlier this year, would advise Goodell on "matters pertaining to the game, including competitive issues, coaching and personnel development, technological innovations, player safety, and the Pro Football Hall of Fame."

"When I retired from broadcasting, I didn't retire from my passion and interest in the game," Madden said in a statement. "This position enables me to continue that."

Madden, in his unpaid position, will chair the coaches' subcommittee to the competition committee, which reports in prior to the league's annual meetings. He also will participate in meetings of the general managers' advisory committee and be part of a weekly call with Goodell or someone on Goodell's staff.

"It was an offer we couldn't refuse," Goodell said in a statement.

If you dont like the idea of an 18 game season, this cant be bad move. Im guessing Madden thinks the season is long enough.

What he really means is "Brett hasn't retired yet so neither I'm I"
