Roger Goodell Contract Extension Reportedly Reached By NFL Owners

Roger Goodell Contract Extension Reportedly Reached By NFL Owners

Roger Goodell has signed a contract extension to remain commissioner of the NFL, ProFootballTalk reported Wednesday, citing a memo sent to owners.

Despite almost incessant griping by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones about Goodell's demands, and his ensuing attempt to stop the extension at all costs, Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reports that an extension was signed. Although Jones had been claiming that he had several owners in his corner who were also against Goodell's contract, the memo noted that there was a "nearly unanimous consensus" among owners who thought it was a good idea to give Goodell an extension.

The Compensation Committee received unanimous authorization from the owners in May 2017 to execute the contract. His current deal runs out in 2019. "I was just telling Roger that, in the history of the National Football League, I'm not sure a big decision has been so transparent as this one", Blank told Sports Illustrated's The MMBQ. Since then, his reign has been awash with controversy, most notably the Deflategate scandal involving Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, which ultimately resulted in a four-game suspension of Brady last season. At that time, Goodell's latest proposal was reportedly seeking around $50 million a year as well as lifetime use of a private jet and health insurance for his family.
