NFL owners set to decide Commissioner Roger Goodell's fate in crucial meeting
Since 2006, Roger Goodell has served as the Commissioner of the NFL, and his current term is set to run until March 24. A conclusion regarding his future may be reached in the not-too-distant future.
The NFL owners are scheduled for a meeting in Phoenix next week, and it is possible that they may make a decision on commissioner Goodell at that time.
As per Adam Schefter:
"Roger Goodell and NFL owners are expected to finalize a multi-year contract extension for the commissioner at next week's owners meetings in Phoenix."
The fact that the majority of NFL owners consider Roger Goodell to be the ideal candidate for the position of NFL commissioner makes it highly likely that he will continue in his current role. Under Goodell's leadership, the league has maintained its strong performance, and there is a strong possibility that this trend will continue.
According to sources, negotiations for an extension of Goodell's contract have been ongoing since the previous season. According to various sources, the parties have reportedly discussed an extension of three years, but no definite length of time and the pay structure has been agreed upon as of yet.
Hopefully, a mutual agreement will be reached soon, and Goodell will continue to do the impressive work he has done so far for the betterment of the league.
Roger Goodell could ramp up Washington Commanders' sale
The sale of the Washington Commanders franchise is currently the most significant obstacle that Commissioner Goodell is facing. After being pressured, Dan Snyder is now considering selling the team, although the transaction has been moving at a snail's pace thus far.
According to recent sources, NBA legend Magic Johnson has also joined the bidding for the Commanders as part of a group that is being led by Josh Harris, who is also the co-owner of both the Philadelphia 76ers and the New Jersey Devils.
It will be interesting to observe whether or not Dan Snyder is able to sell the franchise for the price he has in mind, as he is hoping to receive a healthy return on his initial investment in the franchise.
