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.

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.
