Harold Henderson says NFL club have now agreed…..

The NFL legal chief’s retirement has brought speculation as to who will land one of the most lucrative and high-profile general counsel jobs in all of professional sports.

Bloomberg Law spoke with nearly a dozen people familiar with the NFL and its operations to identify leading candidates to succeed L. Jeffrey Pash, a former partner at Covington & Burling who spent more than 25 years in the post. The people requested anonymity because the NFL’s search process is private.

Possible successors include Lawrence “Larry” Ferazani Jr., a former FBI agent and ex-federal prosecutor who has worked at the NFL for nearly two decades; Major League Soccer general counsel Anastasia Danias Schmidt; and Brook Gardiner, general counsel for the senior US soccer circuit’s developmental league affiliate MLS Next Pro.
