NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has reportedly received the extension that he has been looking for from the league.

ProFootballTalk reports that a source with knowledge of the situation said a memorandum has been sent to all league owners that a "binding contract extension has been signed". Goodell has served as the league's commissioner since taking over for Paul Tagliabue in 2006, and while there has been plenty of controversy during his tenure, the league's owners have chose to keep him around.

According to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, the NFL's Compensation Committee has informed all of the league's 32 owners that it has approved Goodell's extension.

This all happened less than one month after Cowboys owner Jerry Jones threatened Goodell.

Jones, reportedly angry that Goodell banned his star running back Ezekiel Elliott for six games in August over domestic abuse allegations, had attempted to derail the commish's new deal.

Jones also criticized Goodell's leadership and his handling of the national anthem protests.
