How Much Is The NFL Paying The Commissioner?

It's been announced today that NFL Commisioner Roger Goodell has received a five-year extension on his current contract that will keep him in charge of the league until March 2019.

I'm a bit naive about executive compensation, but his salary surprised me. From Pro Football Talk:

Kaplan notes that Goodell made roughly $10 million-per-year before this news, and it’s safe to assume he’ll get a pay bump now.

It's not like he does nothing. Wrangling the egos of 31 traditional NFL owners (plus the Green Bay Packers) can be a challenge. But that's a whole lot of money for being a figurehead.
