Roger Goodell finally signs contract extension with NFL

Roger Goodell finally signs contract extension with NFL

In a league memo obtained by PFT, the "binding contract extension" was signed by Goodell and Falcons owner Arthur Blank, who serves as the chairman of the NFL's Compensation Committee. Our Committee unanimously supports the contract and believes that it is fully consistent with "market" compensation and the financial and other parameters outlined to the owners at our May 2017 meeting, as well as in the best interests of ownership.

While a handful of owners, which included Jerry Jones, had tried to stop this deal from getting done, it was only a matter of time before it happened.

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

Roger Goodell 1, Jerry Jones 0. The extension will keep Goodell in the role through 2024.

Dunham also claimed she told Clinton spokeswoman Adrienne Elrod, but that she doesn't think Clinton ever received her warning. Dunham was apparently "troubled" by Weinstein's presence at Clinton presidential campaign events.

Jones threatened to sue the National Football League if Goodell's contract was renewed although it's unclear if he plans to go through with it. He's expected to make roughly $40 million per year with incentives.

The deal is reported to be for five years, with the total of the deal being in the ballpark of $200 million over the contract span.

Besides, the NFL's recent ratings downtick is just a small part of an overall trend across the television industry.
