Roger Goodell Refutes Retirement Timeline Provided By NFL Spokesman

NFL Special League Meetings Wednesday in Las Colinas

Obviously, that did nothing to change the fact that Goodell will now earn $200 million on his new five-year extension.

"I haven't made any determinations", Goodell said.

Goodell's new five-year deal was the subject of controversy as Jerry Jones attempted to delay or outright block the contract.

Lockhart added that Goodell will spend time helping the league identify his potential successor at commissioner over the next seven years. The commissioner was a great listener and responded and was very supportive of doing not only the right thing for himself personally and his position, but thinking about the league, thinking about what owners are expressing.

After that, however, Goodell plans on hanging up his suit and suspensions and retire from the league, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. Goodell would have to pay for any use of a private plane through the league, the NFL said. "This is something that I'm looking forward to". Assuming Goodell serves the remainder of his new deal, he would have been the National Football League commissioner for 18 years, one longer than his predecessor, Paul Tagliabue.

Goodell, 58, signed the new deal last week after months of negotiations with the league's compensation committee. Goodell asked. "Jerry, do I look like I take it personally?" "I think there is a limit to how many years you should serve".

Snapchat and Spotify have referral deals with Shazam and it has yet to be seen if they will continue under Apple ownership. Its app has a single goal : identify a song that's playing and connect users to a service to download or stream it.

Goodell has been heavy-handed in doling out punishment in connection with the Patriots' alleged deflation of footballs before the AFC Championship Game in 2016, New England's illegal videotaping of opponents' defensive signals, the Saints' alleged use of bounties in 2009 and Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott's domestic violence case in 2016.

Jones says his issues with the commissioner's contract has nothing to do with the suspension. The NFL and NFLPA are now working under a collective bargaining agreement that the two sides hashed out back in 2011. Blank said owners were updated in general meetings and with multiple phone calls. Blank had Jones removed from an ad-hoc post on the committee.

The other owners, most notably Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, who did talk to reporters did so in small groups. "He does love this league, there's no question of that in my mind".

"I'm not sure how old he'll be in March of 2024", Blank said. And he's been very good to this league. "I spoke to him ... on the phone about a week and a half ago. I think we have done that".

"I don't know if there is a rift going forward, " Blank said.

Jones has been a vocal advocate of delaying Goodell's extension, complaining about the high price tag of the deal and offering his view that there has been a lack of transparency by Blank in negotiating it.
