The commissioner has signed a five-year extension with the league, according to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio.

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank headed the six-owner compensation committee that presented the deal on behalf of the 32 owners.

All members of the Compensation Committee, including Robert Kraft, sent out a memo Wednesday to announce the new deal. With Jones under the impression that the deal wouldn't be done before then, there's a good chance the other 31 owners could be dealing with an irate Jones by the time that meeting rolls around. The extension will keep Goodell in the role through 2024. In 2013, for instance, he pocketed $44 million, but that figure dropped to $34 million in 2014.

In the last several weeks, there has been much dialogue concerning Roger Goodell's long-term future as commissioner of the NFL.

Fox's primetime viewership was down 20 percent through the first month of the new television season, according to Nielsen data, while ABC (11 percent), CBS (6 percent), and NBC (four percent) have all seen a decline as well.
