After one of its most-successful seasons ever, the NFL is extending the contract of Commissioner Roger Goodell through the 2018 season.

The 52-year-old Goodell has worked for the league in various positions since 1983. He replaced Paul Tagliabue as commissioner in 2006.

Goodell helped the league get through one of its most troubling periods – a 4 ½ month lockout of the players – and then oversaw a highly successful season once a 10-year collective bargaining agreement was reached.

“It is the only place I have ever wanted to work,” Goodell said after the league’s compensation committee approved the extension.

Goodell’s original five-year contract was extended in 2009. He earned about $10 million, including bonuses, under that contract. During the lockout, he had a $1 salary.

No terms were disclosed for the new contract.
