The NFL's compensation committee informed owners in a memo Wednesday that commissioner Roger Goodell has signed a contract extension, according to a report by Pro Football Talk. ". We are pleased to report that there is a almost unanimous consensus among the ownership in favor of signing the contract extension now".
Goodell, who has been the National Football League commissioner since 2006, is now under contract until March 2019.
Blank, the owner of the Atlanta Falcons, is the chairman of the six-man compensation committe which was given unanimous approval from the 32 owners in May to negotiate the terms of Goodell's new deal.
Jones supported a performance-based contract for Goodell, rather than the fully-guaranteed pay structure of years past.

The model then predicted how obesity rates would unfold until all the virtual children turned 35. These researchers have relied on data on the size and weight of some 41 567 children and adults.
Blank said the owners will have a more direct line to Goodell going forward, including a session with the commissioner at future owners meetings.
Less than 24 hours after Jerry Jones said that a new contract for Roger Goodell wouldn't be getting done this week, the NFL's 32 owners made a decision to do one anyway.
While a handful of owners, which included Jerry Jones, had tried to stop this deal from getting done, it was only a matter of time before it happened. Goodell will earn a guaranteed annual salary of $3.5 million, though he could earn as much as $50 million through incentives, sources told FOX Business senior correspondent Charles Gasparino.
With the league meeting set to basically be held in Jones' backyard, it is somewhat surprising that the Compensation Committee chose to execute the deal before December 13.
