Roger Goodell reportedly close to five-year extension that runs through 2024

Kaplan is specifically reporting that Goodell is on the verge of signing a new five-year contract extension with the National Football League, a pact that would keep him at the helm through 2024. His current contract ends in 2019. He made $32 million in fiscal year 2015 and, according to ESPN, made $212.5 million in his first 10 years as commissioner, beginning in 2006, when he took over for Paul Tagliabue.

The contract negotiations were first reported by Sports Business Journal.

Though a deal is most likely to get done, those talks for Goodell's new deal have not progressed, ESPN.com's Adam Schefter reports.

It appears as though NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell won't be going anywhere anytime soon, according to a Monday morning report from Daniel Kaplan of SportsBusiness Journal and SportsBusiness Daily.

Arsenal did have the ball in the back of the net, however Lacazette's left-footed finish was controversially ruled offside. Wenger commented on their visit: "We were well-organised, efficient and under pressure to win the game, absolutely".

Brady and Goodell underwent a legal battle over Brady's four-game suspension for his role in Deflategate, a ball-deflating scandal which started during the AFC Championship Game following the 2014 season.

The NFL's collective bargaining agreement is set to expire after the 2020 season, and NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith said last week he believes there will be a work stoppage in 2021.

While Goodell's job comes with a natural dose of divisiveness, he has become the face of player discontent with the league's discipline system.

There have been plenty of other major controversies during Goodell's leadership: the ongoing concussion lawsuits and settlements, Ray Rice's domestic violence incident, Michael Vick's dog-fighting ring, Ben Roethlisberger's sexual assault allegations, and more.
