Roger Goodell has made $180.5 mill in his 1st 9 yrs as commish? And ppl say the players ask for too much cash. How many hits has he taken?— Sen'Derrick Marks (@senmarks) February 16, 2016
Marks was a second-round pick of the Tennessee Titans in 2009. He signed a four-year contract extension with $5 million in guaranteed money with the Jaguars before the 2014 season.
Goodell took over as the NFL’s commissioner in September 2006. His salary is determined by the league’s compensation committee, which is made up of a group of NFL owners.
Goodell has reportedly made over $180 million since his 2006. His 2014 salary is higher than any NFL player received during the 2015 season.
