The Compensation Committee, which consists of six owners, headed by the Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, was given authorization to execute an extension for Goodell.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had been fighting to prevent, or at least delay, Goodell's contract extension but he apparently didn't have almost enough support from his fellow owners. ". We are pleased to report that there is a almost unanimous consensus among the ownership in favor of signing the contract extension now".

The approval of the contract will probably come as a shock to Jones, who had said on Tuesday that he didn't think a deal would get done before the National Football League owners meeting that's scheduled for December 13 in Irving, Texas. He had a few other owners that were expected to back him, but that wasn't enough to keep the new contract extension from being signed.
