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.
