National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell signs new deal, reports say

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell reportedly gets his new contract from the league's compensation committee

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell signed a contract extension with the NFL, according to a press release, that news reports say could be worth as much as $200 million.

Jones had said he did not feel the committee understood his demand that all owners - not just the ones who served on the committee that were negotiating the contract - have a voice in approving the terms of Goodell's extension.

A person familiar with the contract told The Associated Press it is worth nearly $200 million, with a base of $40 million.

The MMBQ reported that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was among the holdouts, citing reservations about extending Goodell's contract with a year and a half left while the league faces contentious issues.

The contract ends weeks of hostilities during which Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones threatened to sue the National Football League and the six owners on the compensation committee.

For months, the status of Goodell's contract extension had been up in the air.

"We also have expressed in those conversations our strong and unanimous belief that we should proceed to sign the agreement now, consistent with the unanimous May resolution and to avoid further controversy surrounding this issue.?"

Deals of the new contract have not been reported, but ESPN reported in November that Goodell proposed an extension that included $50 million per year and use of a private jet for life. He was mainly displeased due to the way the league handled the situation of Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.

Accordingly, this will advise the ownership that a binding contract extension has been signed by the Commissioner and by Arthur Blank, on behalf of the League entities.

Jones was not immediately available for comment.

A number of owners backed Jones in his stance against Goodell, but ultimately, Goodell had enough backing from most of the owners to get a deal done.

Also on the compensation committee are owners Clark Hunt of Kansas City, Robert Kraft of New England, John Mara of the New York Giants, Bob McNair of Houston and Art Rooney of Pittsburgh.
