Roger Goodell, the public face of the National Football League and among the most powerful figures in sports, is expected to sign a contract extension through 2024, according to Sports Business Journal.
The former PR man earned $32M in fiscal 2015 and more than $210M during his 10 years as commissioner.
Goodell's extension comes as the NFL continues to wrestle with the concussion and domestic violence issues. E.g., New York Giants offensive tackle Micheal Bowie won't suit up for tonight's game in Cleveland after authorities in Tulsa last weekend filed assault charges against the 25-year-old.
Goodell, 58, succeeded Paul Tagliabue in 2006. He began his NFL career as intern in the front office and then PR staffer for the New York Jets.
