Roger Goodell Signs Contract Extension With "Nearly Unanimous Consensus" Among Owners

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

Commissioner Roger Goodell's contract extension has been signed. The new deal runs through the 2023 season. Although Jones had been claiming that he had several owners in his corner who were also against Goodell's contract, the memo noted that there was a "nearly unanimous consensus" among owners who thought it was a good idea to give Goodell an extension.

All 32 owners unanimously granted the Compensation Committee permission in May to negotiate an extension with 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".

CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora has confirmed that Goodell has been given a new deal by the NFL's Compensation Committee. "We got a lot of input from a lot of owners, a lot of guidance from them, and we feel very good about what developed out of that". He had four or five other owners on his side, at most.

The contract ends weeks of hostilities during which Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones threatened to sue the National Football League and the six owners on the compensation committee.

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 position has been a lucrative one for Goodell, who has earned more than $200 million since 2006, according to ESPN. Since then, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been working to delay and/or derail the process.

Jones had been removed as a non-voting seventh member of the compensation committee after his threat of a lawsuit.
