Roger Goodell Signs New Contract Extension

"We've got to do better as players when we sign the next CBA, we've got to get better leadership as who's running the league because obviously everybody from fans, owners, players are all disappointed in Roger Goodell", Mitchell said.

The web site reported that, according to the memo, the extension was signed by Goodell and Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, who heads the league's compensation committee. Although Jones had been claiming that he had several owners in his corner who were also against Goodell's contract, the memo noted that there was a "nearly unanimous consensus" among owners who thought it was a good idea to give Goodell an extension. The Cowboys owner initially threatened to sue the NFL to block the deal, arguing that the league's compensation committee had misled owners about its terms. "I was just telling Roger that, in the history of the National Football League, I'm not sure a big decision has been so transparent as this one", Blank told The MMQB.

The owners will all get together on December 13, a meeting which will likely end up shedding a bit more light on the details and on the process of extension. Goodell will earn a guaranteed annual salary of $3.5 million, though he could earn as much as $50 million through incentives, sources told FOX Business senior correspondent Charles Gasparino.

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.

Jones had been removed as a non-voting seventh member of the compensation committee after his threat of a lawsuit.
