In a league memo obtained by PFT, the "binding contract extension" was signed by Goodell and Falcons owner Arthur Blank, who serves as the chairman of the NFL's Compensation Committee.

Goodell's new deal, which runs through 2024, had been a contentious issue throughout the 2017 season. The war began after Goodell slapped Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott with a six-game suspension after he was accused of domestic violence by an ex-girlfriend.

The approval of the contract will probably come as a shock to Jones, who had said on Tuesday that he didn't think a deal would get done before the National Football League owners meeting that's scheduled for December 13 in Irving, Texas. It was particularly gratifying to hear so many owners commit to being more engaged in League affairs and to express the desire to work more closely with the Commissioner and League staff on matters critical to the League.
