The NFL's Compensation Committee reportedly agreed to a new contract for Commissioner Roger Goodell.
As first reported by Pro Football Talk, The MMQB's Albert Breer reported the deal is for five years, and tweeted out a copy of the letter sent to NFL owners on behalf of the league's competition committee. The memo also states that it was a "nearly unanimous consensus" to finalize the extension Wednesday. ". We are pleased to report that there is a almost unanimous consensus among the ownership in favor of signing the contract extension now".
Sources previously told ESPN that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was leading an effort to try to halt the league's compensation committee from completing the extension. 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 chose to keep him around.
