NFL commissioner Roger Goodell weighs in on the potential of the Chicago Bears moving their team to Arlington Heights

Because the NFL no longer operates as a tax-exempt trade association, the league does not have to publicly disclose Roger Goodell’s compensation.

That doesn’t mean Roger Goodell’s pay can’t be privately disclosed. The N.F.L. commissioner’s compensation for 2019-20 and 2020-21, bolstered by bonuses for closing labor and media rights deals, was disclosed to team owners in a private meeting.

New York Times reports that Goodell made $128 million in the two-year period covering 2019-20 and 2020-21. Per the report, bonuses for completing a new labor deal and new TV contracts bolstered the total.

“The nine-figure combination of salary, bonuses and other benefits made Goodell one of the highest-paid executives in the country, and the disclosure of the deal comes at a time when he has been criticized for his handling of numerous thorny issues, including the investigation into widespread workplace harassment at the Washington Football Team.”

Goodell was elected NFL commissioner in 2006 as Paul Tagliabue’s replacement. He signed a five-year extension in 2017.

What a gig.
