As further proof of the magnitude of the storm that is bearing down on the New York City area, the NFL has joined with many other local businesses and institutions that are closing their doors on Monday.

The league office is shutting down for the day on which Hurricane Sandy is due to begin to make its/her/whatever presence felt.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello tells PFT that the league plans to conduct normal business operations as far as club transactions, etc.  The work, per Aiello, can be done remotely (from home or elsewhere).  Also, some folks will be at the office, given that they live within walking distance of 345 Park Avenue.

Of course, widespread power outages in Manhattan could impact that plan.  Also, some league employees may be working remotely from, you know, Europe, given that the NFL is staging a game in London today.
