Roger Goodell signs contract extension with NFL

Roger Goodell signs contract extension with NFL

Looks like Jerry Jones didn't get his way after all, as the National Football League owners have reached an agreement to extend the contract of Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, who chairs the compensation committee, in a letter to fellow owners said Goodell's pay is "fully consistent with market compensation". The Cowboys owner initially threatened to sue the NFL to block the deal, arguing that the league's compensation committee had misled owners about its terms.

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". "We should have a real good airing out of some of the things that we've been reading about, and in the meantime I've been having a lot of conversations with a lot of owners".

Goodell's new deal had been a contentious issue throughout 2017.

Goodell's salary was about $32 million in 2015, the past year for which compensation for top league officials was made available in a tax filing. The agreement is worth as much as $200 million, though much of the pay is linked to financial targets and other incentives, according to the New York Times.

The Compensation Committee received authorization from the owners in May to offer an extension to Goodell, but Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had been working to stop the process after Goodell has reportedly promised him that running back Ezekiel Elliott would not be suspended. He later said he would not take the matter to court but told USA TODAY Sports' Jarrett Bell he wanted "accountability".
