The Commissioner finally has a new contract.

The NFL's Compensation Committee reportedly agreed to a new contract for Commissioner Roger Goodell.

The NFL's compensation committee informed owners in a memo Wednesday that commissioner Roger Goodell has signed a contract extension, according to a report by Pro Football Talk.

A couple county commissioners declined to talk about the attack, saying they don't fully understand the ins-and-outs of it. County Manager Dena Diorio said the hacker essentially froze the county's electronic files and gave officials until 1 p.m.

'We are pleased to report that there is a almost unanimous consensus among the ownership in favor of signing the contract extension now, ' read the letter. The extension will keep Goodell in the role through 2024.

Goodell and the NFL have been criticized by fans and even President Donald Trump for allowing players to protest inequality and police brutality against minorities by sitting or kneeling during the national anthem.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had been fighting to prevent, or at least delay, Goodell's contract extension but he apparently didn't have almost enough support from his fellow owners. He later said he would not take the matter to court but told USA TODAY Sports' Jarrett Bell he wanted "accountability".
