Roger Goodell signs contract extension with NFL

Roger Goodell signs contract extension with NFL

Despite opposition from one of the league's most powerful owners, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has signed a new contract, according to multiple reports.

The Compensation Committee, which consists of six owners, headed by the Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, was given authorization to execute an extension for Goodell. Additionally, the memo cites the existence of a "nearly unanimous consensus" among the owners in favor of finalizing the extension now. With Jones under the impression that the deal wouldn't be done before then, there's a good chance the other 31 owners could be dealing with an irate Jones by the time that meeting rolls around.

ProFootballTalk reports that a source with knowledge of the situation said a memorandum has been sent to all league owners that a "binding contract extension has been signed".




The deal is reported to be for five years, with the total of the deal being in the ballpark of $200 million over the contract span.

Roger Goodell is staying on as the commissioner of the National Football League, and reports suggest his contract extension is for five years and up to $200 million. He's expected to make roughly $40 million per year with incentives.

But while critics have pointed to the controversial protests as the main reason for the NFL's declining ratings, RBC Capital Markets found that the league's audience has been slowly declining since 2013 - a suggestion that does not bode well for the league.
