Amid Contract Talks, Goodell Says That He Loves His Job

DETROIT (AP) – NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says he loves his job, but he did not share details Tuesday of his talks regarding a new contract.

“This is an extraordinary job and an extraordinary responsibility, and one that I am passionate about, and I love it,” Goodell said at a fan forum in Detroit. “We’re having discussions, and we’ll see how it goes, but the reality is, I believe the best days of the NFL are ahead, and as long as I can contribute to that, I would.”

There were multiple reports Monday, including from The Associated Press, that the league was working on a five-year extension for Goodell.

If reached, the extension would ensure that Goodell would remain in his position for the next round of collective bargaining between owners and players. His contract is up after the 2019 season, and the current labor deal expires after the 2020 season.
