Roger Goodell Close to Five-Year Extension With the NFL

Roger Goodell is reportedly close to an extension that would run through 2024

The NFL is on the verge of extending commissioner Roger Goodell's contract through 2024, according to multiple reports.

As it stands today, Goodell's current contract is set to expire in 2019.

Goodell earned more than $31 million in the league's 2015 fiscal year, according to a tax filing.

Sports Business Journal was the first to report on the seemingly imminent deal, saying an announcement could come this week. ESPN's Adam Schefter suggested talks have not gone as expected, but it's a matter of time before any lingering issues are ironed out and a new deal for Goodell is officially done.

If you thought Roger Goodell's job as National Football League commissioner was close to the end, you may have to wait a little longer.

Goodell is expected in the New England area in two weeks leading up to the NFL Kickoff Game between the Patriots and Chiefs on September 7.

A new contract would mean Goodell will likely oversee negotiations between owners and the NFL Players Association over a new collective bargaining agreement in 2021.

Goodell's tenure has seen no shortage of issues, ranging from the league's evolving stance on players accused of domestic violence to its handling of player safety, such as concussions and head trauma.

While Goodell's job comes with a natural dose of divisiveness, he has become the face of player discontent with the league's discipline system.

The NFL office has given up its status as a non-profit, flimsy as that was anyway, so it is no longer required to make Goodell's salary public.
