The Commissioner finally has a new contract.
The NFL's Compensation Committee informed all owners Wednesday that Goodell has signed a new contract, extending his tenure as league commissioner, according to a Pro Football Talk report.
The memorandum to all owners explains that a "binding contract extension has been signed by the Commissioner and by Arthur Blank, on behalf of the League entities".
Goodell previously made around $40 million a year, depending on how many incentives the leagues achieves in any given season.
Goodell and the NFL have been criticized by fans and even President Donald Trump for allowing players to protest inequality and police brutality against minorities by sitting or kneeling during the national anthem.
Jones had been removed as a non-voting seventh member of the compensation committee after his threat of a lawsuit.
Goodell reportedly wanted to earn nearly $50 million per year with perks such as use of a private jet for life and lifetime health insurance for his family.
The base salary of the new contract is in the single-digit millions, a source had told Schefter.
