Roger Goodell’s 5-year extension is now official, despite Jerry Jones’ efforts to fight it

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell survived bungling the Ray Rice situation, Bountygate and Deflategate, and now even Jerry Jones’ ire. Goodell will stay in power through 2024 after finally getting his five-year extension, according to ProFootballTalk.

Goodell will make $4 million guaranteed, with the rest in bonuses adding up to $200 million over the duration of the extension as they are met, according to the New York Times’ Ken Belson.

The extension didn’t come without a fight. Reports first surfaced in mid-September that Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, was attempting to impede the process of the extension.

“If not for Jerry,” one person familiar with the contract negotiations told ESPN in September, “this deal would be done.”

Jones later threatened to sue the NFL to block the extension of Goodell in early November. However, NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said immediately after the threat that negotiations would be ongoing. At the spring meeting, all 32 owners — including Jones — authorized the compensation committee to enter the negotiations and extend him to 2024.

The competition committee released a memo to owners on the contract, via Albert Breer:

Dear Owners,

Please see the below message sent on behalf of the Compensation Committee.

All,

In recent days, we have spoken with each of you
