Roger Goodell has signed a contract extension that will extend his role as NFL commissioner through 2024.
According to the Washington Post, Goodell could earn up to $40 million per year, with roughly 90 percent of that total incentive based.
The NFL compensation committee, which is made up of six NFL owners and was granted the power to finalize Goodell's contract last May, sent a memo to the league's other 26 owners notifying them of the deal Wednesday.
"Our committee unanimously supports the contract and believes that it is fully consistent with 'market' compensation and the financial and other parameters outlined to the owners at the May 2017 meeting, as well as in the best interests of ownership," the memo stated.
Goodell has been the NFL commissioner since 2006 when he replaced the retiring Paul Tagliabue
