Roger Goodell signs contract extension with NFL: report

Looks like Jerry Jones didn't get his way after all, as the National Football League owners have reached an agreement to extend the contract of Commissioner Roger Goodell.

The Compensation Committee, which consists of six owners, headed by the Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, was given authorization to execute an extension for Goodell. If those figures are correct, Goodell's new deal is worth as much as double what he made from his first 10 years from 2006-2015, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell. He had four or five other owners on his side, at most. ". We are pleased to report that there is a almost unanimous consensus among the ownership in favor of signing the contract extension now".

According to the report there was reportedly a "nearly unanimous consensus" among owners to re-sign Goodell.

While the details of Goodell's new contract remain unknown, consider Jones, the 28-year Cowboys owner, not in Goodell's corner.

But while critics have pointed to the controversial protests as the main reason for the NFL's declining ratings, RBC Capital Markets found that the league's audience has been slowly declining since 2013 - a suggestion that does not bode well for the league. Throughout the rocky moments in Goodell's tenure, the league is still generating a $14 billion annual revenue.
