Goodell signs extension through 2024
NEW YORK >> Roger Goodell has signed a five-year extension to remain commissioner of the NFL through 2024.
A memo from the NFL’s compensation committee to team owners and obtained Wednesday by the Associated Press confirms that Goodell and committee chairman and Falcons owner Arthur Blank have signed the extension. That extension has been a source of controversy because Dallas owner Jerry Jones objected to the process.
All 32 owners approved in May the compensation committee’s power to negotiate and sign a deal with Goodell, who replaced Paul Tagliabue in 2006. Since then, the league’s total revenues have more than doubled to $14 billion.
