NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is working on an agreement on a five-year contract extension which would run through 2024.
If the agreement is reached, Goodell’s new deal would mimic his current contract, which expires in 2019.
A committee chaired by Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank has had conversations about the contract with Goodell since the league meetings in May. Due to the problem of talks not progressing as expected, the deal is taking a longer time to be completed.
Goodell made close to $32 million in fiscal year 2015 and has made $212.5 million in his first 10 years as commissioner.
