NEW YORK — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has had his contract extended through the 2018 season.
The league says a resolution was approved at a December owners meeting to negotiate an extension with Goodell, who took over for Paul Tagliabue in 2006. His original five-year contract was extended in 2009, and the new extension was announced Wednesday.
Goodell oversaw a 4 ½-month lockout last year, but a new 10-year collective bargaining agreement with the players' union was reached in late July, and only one preseason game was canceled. The NFL then had one of its most successful seasons.
The 52-year-old Goodell calls the NFL "the only place I have ever wanted to work." He has been a part of the NFL since 1983 in a variety of jobs.
