National Football League (NFL) Commissioner Roger Goodell is aiming to secure his job for at least five more years. As sportswriter Albert Breer claims, there is one main reason why Goodell is willing to sign a new contract despite many criticisms and controversies.
Breer, who works for Sports Illustrated magazine, posits that Goodell’s fight against the players comes first. The commissioner doesn’t want to lose control of the league and player control. For this reason, there will be talks about a new contract in time for the start of the season to consolidate his position and power in the league.
