As noted in the memo, a unanimous decision to extend the commissioner's contract was reached in May of this year.
Looks like Jerry Jones didn't get his way after all, as the National Football League owners have reached an agreement to extend the contract of Commissioner Roger Goodell.
According to the report, the NFL's compensation committee sent a memorandum to all owners informing them of Goodell's extension.
According to the six-person compensation committee, there was a almost unanimous consensus among the ownership in favor of signing the contract extension now.
Negotiations dragged on for months amid reports that Jones opposed the proposed structure of Goodell's contract extension.
CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora has confirmed that Goodell has been given a new deal by the NFL's Compensation Committee. It was particularly gratifying to hear so many owners commit to being more engaged in League affairs and to express the desire to work more closely with the Commissioner and League staff on matters critical to the League. Goodell will earn a guaranteed annual salary of $3.5 million, though he could earn as much as $50 million through incentives, sources told FOX Business senior correspondent Charles Gasparino.
Despite Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' best efforts, Roger Goodell has his new deal. The Cowboys owner also advocated that all 32 owners vote to approve a final contract extension, not just the six members of the compensation committee.
