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.
All 32 owners unanimously granted the Compensation Committee permission in May to negotiate an extension with Goodell. The memo also cites the existence of a "nearly unanimous consensus" among the owners in favor of finalizing the extension now.
Financial terms of the contract for Goodell, who has been commissioner of the most popular US sports league since 2006, were not disclosed but multiple media reports said the two sides agreed to a five-year deal worth $200 million. His current deal runs out in 2019.
"I'm happy that it's over". 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. "We got a lot of input from a lot of owners, a lot of guidance from them, and we feel very good about what developed out of that". Since then, his reign has been awash with controversy, most notably the Deflategate scandal involving Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, which ultimately resulted in a four-game suspension of Brady last season.
Prior to signing the extension, which was first reported by ProFootballTalk, his contract would have expired after the 2018 season.
In May 2017, the consensus was unanimous, but in recent weeks Cowboys owner Jerry Jones reportedly has been trying to keep Goodell from being re-signed. He later told USA Today Sports that he would not sue over the extension but wanted "accountability" in the process.
