Roger Goodell receives extension from the NFL

Report | Roger Goodell signs new contract

The NFL commissioner has reportedly signed a 5-year contract extension. The committee notified the owners with a memo that said a "binding contract extension has been signed by the Commissioner and by Arthur Blank, on behalf of the League entities".

Financial terms of the contract for Goodell, who has been commissioner of the most popular USA sports league since 2006, were not disclosed but multiple media reports said the two sides agreed to a five-year deal worth $200 million. The new deal runs through the 2023 season. There was also a "nearly unanimous consensus" among the owners in favor of the deal.

The Compensation Committee received unanimous authorization from the owners in May 2017 to execute the contract.

"I'm happy that it's over". "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".

Following Saleh's death , the Saudi-led coalition was reported to have blitzed Sanaa with an intensified campaign of airstrikes. The conflict has seen civilians repeatedly killed by bombing and through a lack of access to essential food and clean water.

A number of owners backed Jones in his stance against Goodell, but ultimately, Goodell had enough backing from most of the owners to get a deal done. We know that we speak for all of you, as well as for the Commissioner, in saying that the National Football League is strongest when our ownership is active and unified. 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.

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.

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

But Blank says that Jones "understands the contract and how we got here", according to The MMBQ.
