With his current deal set to expire in 2019 NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is receiving a new extension deal. A compensation committee helped seal the deal, the committee consists of six owners: chairman Arthur Blank (Atlanta Falcons); Clark Hunt (Kansas City Chiefs); Robert Kraft (New England Patriots); John Mara (New York Giants); Bob McNair (Houston Texans); Art Rooney II (Pittsburgh Steelers); and The Cowboys’ Jerry Jones.
Jerry Jones appeared to be the only member of the committee to raise an issue about the deal. Jones has argued persistently that other owners in the NFL believe Goodell makes “way too much money” and demanded that the commissioner receive a pay-cut and a radical change in the compensation formula for the commissioner. Goodell averages more than $21 million per year and has made a total of $212.5 million since becoming the NFL commissioner in 2006.
