Reports surfaced Monday morning that Goodell is close to signing a contract extension that would keep him as the NFL's commissioner through 2024. He's now under contract until 2019. Goodell made almost $32 million in fiscal year 2015, according to the league's tax filing from that year, and has made $212.5 million in his first 10 years as commissioner.
A deal is likely to be completed, but there are still issues to work out because talks have not progressed as expected, a league source tells ESPN's Adam Schefter. Because the two sides have yet to formally agree to a new deal, the parameters and financial details surrounding the looming pact have yet to come to light.

Also present at the media conference were Deputy Youth and Sports Minister Datuk M. Due to this misprint, the red-and-white Indonesian flag looked like Poland's flag.
Goodell is a lame duck commissioner in the eyes of the players, but he is a gem in the eyes of the owners. The current collective bargaining agreement expires after the 2020 season.
Goodell's recent decision to suspend Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott for six games in a case of alleged domestic violence has sparked anew the sniping between the league office and the NFL Players Association.
The details are scarce at this point, since the National Football League no longer needs to publicly disclose his salary. But 29 other guys (and whoever speaks for the Packers on league matters) also have a say in Goodell's status and future.
