NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will remain with the league for the next five years, thanks to a new extension he signed today.
Goodell will be paid about $40 million annually and make a reported $200 million through the 2023, depending on how he performs. Owners have to approve and give validation to the incentives and bonuses put in the new contract, which accounts for a big portion of what he makes.
This puts an end to the delay in the deal, which was put off due to player protests and other controversy the NFL has experienced this year.
Some even reported that he wanted a private plane and other perks.
As much as Jerry Jones tried to get him out of the paint, it seems like the owners have spoken and given Roger the keys to the kingdom for the foreseeable future.
