NFL owners should begin working on a contract extension for Commissioner Roger Goodell, Pittsburgh Steelers owner Dan Rooney said yesterday.
Goodell signed a five-year contract when he was elected by the owners in August 2006 to succeed Paul Tagliabue. The owners seem pleased with his performance.
Rooney said a contract extension is merited but has not been officially discussed among the owners yet.
“There has not been talk about that yet,” Rooney said in a telephone interview. “But I’ve thought about it, and I think it’s time to start talking about it. I think he’s done a wonderful job.”
