Goodell’s contract extension comes after a new 10-yr Collective Bargaining Agreement was formed, ending a several month long NFL lockout. The most recently available tax returns demonstrate Goodell earning about $10 million a year. According to Kaplan, Goodell will most likely receive an increase in salary by the end of the new 5-year extension deal. In 2006, Goodell succeeded 17-year NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue. With the new extension, Goodell would be at the helm for a total of 13 years.
