Roger Goodell receives extension from the NFL

NFL commish Roger Goodell inks his new contract: report

The NFL's Compensation Committee has "executed" a new contract for Commissioner Roger Goodell, according to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio.

Goodell has been the NFL Commissioner since 2006, and his current contract before the deal was put in place run through March 2019. He was the ringleader of a multi-owner conference call on October 26 in which the Cowboys owner and others discussed whether they could halt a possible extension for Goodell.

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

Atlanta mayoral candidate demands recount after close loss
Results from Atlanta's mayoral race will be recounted on Saturday after voters delivered a almost split decision Tuesday night. But as Stephannie Stokes reports from member station WABE in Atlanta, the crowd at Norwood's election party was energized too.

ESPN confirmed the Goodell's extension, which comes during a tumultuous season defined by player protests and the harsh response from fans and even President Trump.

'We are pleased to report that there is a almost unanimous consensus among the ownership in favor of signing the contract extension now, ' read the letter. With Jones under the impression that the deal wouldn't be done before then, there's a good chance the other 31 owners could be dealing with an irate Jones by the time that meeting rolls around.

While it looks as though the controversial Goodell may have received a slight raise, it appears the financial structure is now based more on performance, which was something Jones had been pushing for.
