Roger Goodell's contract to be extended through 2024, report says

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, once embattled, now would have job security through 2024.

In a taped interview for HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel set to air Tuesday, Smith outright accused commissioner Roger Goodell of lying about crafting a new personal conduct policy with union input. His current contract ends in 2019.

ESPN's Adam Schefter added on Monday that Goodell's deal still has "issues to work out" and that the terms of his deal "have not progressed as some thought", but the extension is still likely to get done. His compensation is determined by a committee of National Football League owners.

While now lasting more than 10 years in his current role, Goodell was infamously paid a whopping $212.5 million in his first decade as commissioner.

The 58-year-old Goodell originally assumed his role atop the National Football League back on September 1, 2006. With an extension, Goodell would represent the league's 32 owners in negotiations toward renewing the collective bargaining agreement, which expires after 2020.

Goodell is expected in the New England area in two weeks leading up to the NFL Kickoff Game between the Patriots and Chiefs on September 7.
