NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has received a three-year contract extension through March 2027, it was announced Wednesday.

“It really was quite simple, honestly,” Goodell said of the process involved for the extension. “It was just a matter of getting to it, frankly. It wasn’t much of a discussion. It was pretty quick.

“I’m obviously honored to do this job.”

Goodell, 64, has served as league commissioner since 2006. The economic framework of Goodell’s new deal is not known but is expected to be incentive-laden and, considering the league’s financial success, the most lucrative deal ever given to any commissioner in any sport.

Goodell, whose deal was set to expire in spring 2024, reportedly earned $63.9 million for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons.

The announcement was made by the NFL’s compensation committee.

“From my standpoint, there’s still a number of things that we want to do as a league,” Goodel said of his key priorities heading into his new deal. “It’s not my agenda. When we talked about a long-range plan [with owners], we talked about, ‘this is your long-range plan.’
