NFL Commish Reportedly Wants $50 Million Salary, Lifetime Private Jet Use

The NFL is working on a proposed contract extension for Commissioner Roger Goodell, and he's reportedly asking for a pretty extravagant compensation package. ESPN reported that in Goodell's last written counterproposal, which was in early August, he asked for a $49.5 million annual salary, lifetime use of a private jet, and lifetime health insurance for his family. Goodell currently makes around $30 million a year. The NFL's executive VP of communications denied Goodell had submitted such a written counterproposal. ESPN cited an unnamed NFL executive as saying, "That number for Roger just seems too much. It's offensive. It's unseemly," while another league executive said a rule should be passed that bars Goodell from making more than the league's highest-paid player. One owner who's been vocal about not wanting Goodell to stay as commissioner is the Dallas Cowboys' Jerry Jones, but there are others who have concerns as well. One unnamed owner told ESPN, "The problem is, no one is talking about games anymore. It's about concussions, [Jerry] Jones vs. Goodell, [Ezekiel Elliott's suspension], the [national] anthem [protests]. No one is talking about football. It's just killing the game."
