Roger Goodell Signs New Contract Extension

NFL commish Roger Goodell inks his new contract: report

The NFL's compensation committee informed the owners that a new contract has been signed with Goodell, NBC's Pro Football Talk reported Wednesday afternoon. The two sides had been working to close the deal since May, after the Compensation Committee unanimously voted on the extension. ". We are pleased to report that there is a almost unanimous consensus among the ownership in favor of signing the contract extension now".

While it looks as though the controversial Goodell may have received a slight raise, it appears the financial structure is now based more on performance, which was something Jones had been pushing for.

CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora has confirmed that Goodell has been given a new deal by the NFL's Compensation Committee.

The Washington Post's Mark Maske later reported that Goodell's extension is for five years and up to $40 million per season, with about 90 percent tied to incentives.

In May 2017, the consensus was unanimous, but in recent weeks Cowboys owner Jerry Jones reportedly has been trying to keep Goodell from being re-signed.

Coincidentally, Jones started griping when Goodell suspended Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott six games for domestic violence.
