NFL agrees to contract extension with Commissioner Roger Goodell

NFL commish Roger Goodell inks his new contract: report

Compensation Committee ignores Jerry Jones, gives Roger Goodell a new contract

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, considered by some the second-most powerful figure in the NFL, pushed back against Goodell's contract process and had some support, but it appears that the league's Compensation Committee had its way.

Roger Goodell has signed a contract extension to remain commissioner of the NFL, ProFootballTalk reported Wednesday, citing a memo sent to owners.

Despite Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' best efforts, Roger Goodell has his new deal.

The memo reportedly hypes a "nearly unanimous consensus" among the owners.

This irked Israel because his predecessor had always gone first to Israel and entered the territories from Israel. Pope Francis says he can not remain silent about a White House plan to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank headed the six-owner compensation committee that presented the deal on behalf of the 32 owners.

Roger Goodell is staying on as the commissioner of the National Football League, and reports suggest his contract extension is for five years and up to $200 million. Goodell has served as the league's commissioner since taking over for Paul Tagliabue in 2006, and while there has been plenty of controversy during his tenure, the league's owners have made a decision to keep him around.

We look forward to seeing each of you at the Special Meeting in Dallas on December 13th and to working together, as a partnership, to address the important issues facing the League.
