Roger Goodell’s New Contract Will Be His Last According To NFL Spokesperson
Commissioner Roger Goodell signed a new contract extension, but according to an NFL spokesperson, it will be his final one. Last week, Goodell signed a five-year extension on his previous contract. With the extension, his new contract will go until March of 2024. After that, Goodell will allegedly retire as NFL commissioner.
On Wednesday in Texas, National Football League spokesman Joe Lockhart said, “The commissioner I think has been clear that he views this as his last contract and will allow him to deal with some of the important issues that we know are on the horizon.” The remarks were made during the NFL owner meetings in Dallas, according to the Associated Press.
The new agreement, which was finalized by the NFL’s compensation committee, begins after Goodell’s current deal expires in 2019. “We are pleased to report that there is a nearly unanimous consensus among the ownership in favor of signing the contract extension now,” the NFL’s compensation committee announced in a memo. “We are pleased to have resolved this issue and we appreciate the strong support received from our partners.”
