Report: Roger Goodell Wants Nearly $50 Million Yearly & Lifetime Use of a Private Jet
The NFL's compensation committee will hold a conference call Monday to discuss Commissioner Roger Goodell's most recent proposal on a contract extension, which some owners are reportedly balking at.
ESPN reported that Goodell is seeking "about $49.5 million per year, as well as the lifetime use of a private jet and lifetime health insurance for his family," citing an anonymous source.
“That number for Roger just seems too much,” one unnamed owner told ESPN. “It’s offensive. It’s unseemly.”
Goodell's current contract runs through 2019 and pays him approximately $30 million annually. The 58-year-old has been commissioner since 2006.
All 32 NFL owners voted in May to extend Goodell's contract and authorized the compensation committee to negotiate on their behalf.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones - who's recently battled Goodell and the league over the suspension of Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott - threatened to file a lawsuit if Goodell's extension is completed without final review or approval from the league's 32 teams.
The contract negotiation comes amid the controversy over some NFL players refusing to stand for the national anthem.
