Roger Goodell Reportedly Demanding $50 Million Per Year, Lifetime Private Jet

Roger Goodell Reportedly Demanding $50 Million Per Year, Lifetime Private Jet

Roger Goodell has reportedly made some lofty demands in his latest contract negotiations with NFL owners, but the league insists the things he is asking for are not quite as extravagant as one report made them out to be. "It's offensive. It's unseemly". That, coupled with the continued fallout from the player protests during the singing of "The Star Spangled Banner", have resulted in Jones' threat to sue the league if any such deal with Goodell goes through.

Despite voting to authorize the commission to negotiate with Goodell, Jones said that he thinks the whole league should have a say in negotiations in an interview with KRLD, a Dallas-based CBS radio affiliate.

This request comes off the heels of one of the most boggled public relations stories of all time - the NFL's failure to properly address players who choose to kneel during the national anthem as a way to highlight police brutality.

"One NFL owner told ESPN that there are 'several owners in this league who don't make $40 million a year.' The owner was referring to the salaries that owners take, which does not include the increase in valuations that each NFL franchise has undergone", the two ESPN insiders noted. As his 28-year ownership history shows, he is not afraid of taking an unpopular stand-and of angering his peers-when he feels he is right.

While Goodell has been the National Football League commissioner for over a decade, he may not get a contract extension by the National Football League owners.

The Roger Goodell contract details are leaking as fast as Ezekiel Elliott runs. The committee has found consistent support for a new Goodell deal. Despite no criminal conviction Goodell suspended Elliot for six games for breaking the NFL's personal conduct policy.

"The problem is, no one is talking about games anymore", said one owner. "It's about concussions, Jones vs. Goodell, Zeke, the anthem". It's also mentioned in the report that Goodell's desired salary is more than some team owners make in a year, outside appreciation of their investment.
