In recent days, we have spoken with each of you individually regarding the status of the negotiations to extend Commissioner Goodell's employment contract.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has officially signed a new contract extension, sources told Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio on Wednesday.

The web site reported that, according to the memo, the extension was signed by Goodell and Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, who heads the league's compensation committee. The Cowboys owner initially threatened to sue the NFL to block the deal, arguing that the league's compensation committee had misled owners about its terms.

Blank said the owners will have a more direct line to Goodell going forward, including a session with the commissioner at future owners meetings. Questions about the likelihood of an extension also followed the debate over NFL player protests during the national anthem earlier this year.

The position has been a lucrative one for Goodell, who has earned more than $200 million since 2006, according to ESPN.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had been fighting to prevent, or at least delay, Goodell's contract extension but he apparently didn't have almost enough support from his fellow owners.

Goodell's salary was about $32 million in 2015, the previous year for which compensation for top league officials was made available in a tax filing.

Jones had been removed as a non-voting seventh member of the compensation committee after his threat of a lawsuit. 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.
