NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell nearing contract extension
22 August, 2017, 00:55 | Author: Kelly Sanders
Goodell's current deal runs out in 2019, so this extension will keep him in the job until 2024.
Goodell, 58, has been the top executive in the nation's most popular sport since September 1, 2006, when he succeeded Paul Tagliabue.
The agreement contains similar terms to Goodell's current deal in terms of compensation, with a multi-million dollar base salary and bonus awarded by the league's 32 owners, according to Sports Business Journal reporter Daniel Kaplan.
ESPN reported that, while Goodell is on track to receive a new deal, there are still some issues that need to be ironed out.
Commissioner Roger Goodell is on track to maintain his prominent place at the table for the next round of collective bargaining between National Football League owners and players, a process that's sure to be contentious.
Powerball jackpot climbs to $650M after no one wins Saturday
The highest-ever Powerball jackpot was almost $1.6 billion in a January 2016 draw, which was split between three winning tickets. The winning numbers in Powerball's massive $ 535 million jackpot drawn Saturday were 17, 19, 39, 43, 68 and Powerball number 13.
Goodell worked his way through the ranks and was appointed executive vice president and chief operating officer by Tagliabue in 2001.
Since the agreement was signed, the players union has clashed with Goodell and the league in notable cases such as Ezekiel Elliott's suspension for alleged domestic violence, Tom Brady's Deflategate suspension and Adrian Peterson's suspension for child abuse.
The league is working on a five-year contract extension for Goodell, a person with knowledge of the negotiations told The Associated Press.
