Roger Goodell could extend his time as commissioner of the NFL, according to a report in the Sports Business Journal published Friday.
Goodell is negotiating a fourth contract extension, which may be in place in the coming months, according to the Sports Business Journal, citing several sources. Goodell last signed a deal in 2017, which took him through 2024. At the time, an NFL spokesman said it would be the last contract for Goodell, who turned 63 on February 19th.
Instead, according to SBJ, an extension is being negotiated.
NFL Vice President of Communications Brian McCarthy said “there is no truth in this report.”
“[Goodell’s] on top of his game right now. Why should we have him walk out the door? ”An NFL owner told SBJ.
The report said Goodell’s deal would likely be extended two to four years after the 2024 expiration date.
Goodell became an NFL commissioner in 2006.
