Roger Goodell’s contract extension is now official and the NFL commissioner isn’t going anywhere. Sorry, Jerry Jones!
The contract is worth up to $200 million over five years, which is a lot of money Bill Barnwell has a cool way to think about that. Yeesh.
So Roger Goodell will make about as much in 2018 as Odell Beckham, Tom Brady, Deshaun Watson, Carson Wentz, and Russell Wilson combined. https://t.co/iCSfnr9fCn— Bill Barnwell (@billbarnwell) December 6, 2017
NFL players noticed Roger Goodell getting NFL star money, too.
Tom Brady makes $20.5mm per year; @nflcommish makes $40mm per year. So does that mean that Roger Goodell is twice as valuable to the NFL and twice as hard to replace?— Joe Thomas (@joethomas73) December 7, 2017
