Roger Goodell Seeking $50M Salary, Private Jet for Life in New Contract

Nov 13, 2017, 01:41

Specifically, Jones is worth $5.6 billion and has seen himself accrue this worth primarily during Goodell's tenure as NFL Commissioner. Next step: Leak to the media what Goodell is looking for.

In his most recent counterproposal to the Compensation Committee regarding his next contract as commissioner of the NFL, Roger Goodell in August sought almost a $50 million salary and lifetime private jet usage and healthcare for his family, according to ESPN.

According to the ESPN report, Jones said that the league is in a state of "upheaval" under an "avalanche of issues that have beleaguered the NFL unlike any other time in recent memory".

ESPN quotes one National Football League owner as saying, "that number for Roger just seems too much". Those owners surely hope that the group grows, and leaks like this one won't hurt that effort.

ESPN cites that he makes a reported $30 million annually.

The NFL's compensation committee - which includes Giants co-owner John Mara - will hold a conference call Monday to "discuss and further push ahead the proposed extension" for Goodell, per ESPN. "It's offensive. It's unseemly". "He can stand to show some humility, but he won't listen to staff".

All 32 owners voted in May to extend Goodell's contract and authorized the compensation committee to work out the details.

There also are those in the league who believe the only way Goodell would not stay on as commissioner would be if he walked away.

"I'm willing to bet on myself", Goodell said in a months-ago meeting with the committee, willing to forfeit much of the money that his current deal now guarantees in lieu of earning the bonuses.

Owners also feel that outside issues are destroying the product.

Per a source, the time to address the power of the commissioner and ensure that the owners have some sway in his decision making is during the hiring and extension process.

"The problem is, no one is talking about games anymore", said one owner. "It's about concussions, Jones vs. Goodell, Zeke, the anthem".

Jones had approved an extension for Goodell, formerly a close ally, in August, before Goodell suspended star RB Ezekiel Elliott for six games.
