Roger Goodell Signs Contract Extension

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell reportedly gets his new contract from the league's compensation committee

"... We are pleased to report that there is a almost unanimous consensus among the ownership in favor of signing the contract extension now".

According to Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen of ESPN, those owners were "generally unhappy with Goodell and the NFL's front office for a variety of reasons, including the player protests staged during the national anthem, issues regarding the relocation of teams to Los Angeles and the league's handling of the Ray Rice domestic violence case".

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".

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.

Were the timing on that deal different, Goodell might not have his new contract now.

Police Say Suspect & 2 Students Dead After Shooting At New Mexico School
Sheriff's officials say that the shooter is in custody and that there are reported victims wounded, but it wasn't clear how many. Authorities said families of the victims have been notified but few details on the incident or motive were immediately known.

The MMBQ reported that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was among the holdouts, citing reservations about extending Goodell's contract with a year and a half left while the league faces contentious issues.

However, Goodell seemed unfazed by the protestations of other owners and appeared intent on getting what he wanted.

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.

"That would not include Jones, whose objections surfaced publicly after his star running back, Ezekiel Elliott, ran out of legal options to appeal a six-game suspension handed down by Goodell under the NFL's personal conduct penalty". They'll want a strong voice in how player discipline is handled and the flat-out removal of Goodell as judge, jury and executioner as well as assurances that their health care will be taken care of long after they leave the game along with additional compensation for players who end up disabled physically, mentally or both. However, he finally accepted his six-game suspension and is now serving it.
