Goodell's deal reportedly worth $40 million annually.
Roger Goodell is staying on as the commissioner of the NFL, and reports suggest his contract extension is for five years and up to $200 million. If those figures are correct, Goodell's new deal is worth as much as double what he made from his first 10 years from 2006-2015, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell.
Pro Football Talk reports that the NFL’s Compensation Committee today informed all 32 owners that a new contract for Commissioner Roger Goodell has been executed.
The memo explains that a “binding contract extension has been signed by the Commissioner and by Arthur Blank, on behalf of the League entities.” Additionally, the memo cites the existence of a “nearly unanimous consensus” among the owners in favor of finalizing the extension now.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had been fighting to prevent, or at least delay, Goodell's contract extension but he apparently didn't have nearly enough support from his fellow owners.
