NFL agrees to contract extension with Commissioner Roger Goodell

All 32 owners unanimously granted the Compensation Committee permission in May to negotiate an extension with Goodell.

In a league memo obtained by PFT, the "binding contract extension" was signed by Goodell and Falcons owner Arthur Blank, who serves as the chairman of the NFL's Compensation Committee.

The Compensation Committee received unanimous authorization from the owners in May 2017 to execute the contract.

So far companies have chosen to hedge at the higher prices rather than drill as they try to return to positive cash flow. Brent crude, the global benchmark, was down 0.62% at $62.47 a barrel on London's Intercontinental Exchange.

Goodell has been the NFL Commissioner since 2006, and his current contract before the deal was put in place run through March 2019. Goodell has served as the league's commissioner since taking over for Paul Tagliabue in 2006, and while there has been plenty of controversy during his tenure, the league's owners have made a decision to keep him around. The memo also cited a "nearly unanimous consensus" among National Football League owners who supported finalizing the deal.

There had been various reports that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was going to step in to slow the process given how Ezekiel Elliott's situation was handled by the league. With Jones under the impression that the deal wouldn't be done before then, there's a good chance the other 31 owners could be dealing with an irate Jones by the time that meeting rolls around.
