Wait, Roger Goodell Made HOW Much Last Year?


NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made $44.2 million last year. Yes, you read that right. According to Sports Business Journal reporter Daniel Kaplan, Goodell took home a cool $35.1 million, PLUS $9.1 million in deferred payments for the fiscal year that ended on March 31, 2013.

Kaplan obtained a letter written by NFL owners Arthur Blank, Robert Kraft and Jerry Richardson that claimed "Goodell's compensation reflects our pay-for-performance philosophy and is appropriate given the fact that the NFL under his consistently strong leadership continues to grow."




For contrast, the President of the United States makes $400,000 a year* - just under 1/100th of Goodell's yearly salary.
