The NFL’s compensation committee is slated to present the proposed extension to team owners during a special privileged session Tuesday afternoon. Only one member from each team is permitted in that meeting.
Goodell’s extension has been in the works since last season, when the compensation committee was granted permission by the full membership to get an extension done, according to sources. The sides have discussed a three-year extension, according to sources, but no length of time has been agreed to yet.
Goodell took over as commissioner from Paul Tagliabue on Sept. 1, 2006.
It has been reported Goodell earns more than $63 million annually on his current contract.
