TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said he was privately approached about his interest in becoming the NFL's next commissioner.

Bush said Tuesday the issue was discussed at a recent meeting with Patrick Rooney Sr., according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Rooney's brother is Dan Rooney, owner of Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers and co-chair of the search committee looking to replace the retiring Paul Tagliabue.

"I met with Mr. Rooney and I said, `I'm doing my job until I'm finished and then I'm going to consider other things,'" Bush told the newspaper.

I'd laugh if he became commissioner.

That'd be the most ridiculous thing ever if Jeb became commissioner. I think we should definately give the job to someone with experience in the league.

Serious question: What qualifications would someone need to be considered for the NFL commisioner?

All I've heard mentioned is Clinton and Bush. Does that mean a political background is an important aspect?

Well the silver-lining would be that we wouldn't have to see him as President.

That's too bad that he didn't say yes. It would have saved the Jaguars from LA and helped us save a buck or two on airfare...

but then again since he was asked to be commissioner, he must have a few friends in the NFL ranks.
