Roger Goodell apparently has enough cash to pay for his own flights after signing his mammoth five-year, $200 million extension with the NFL's owners.
Per NBC Sports, Appearing Monday on CNBC, Goodell was asked about the “plane for life.”
“Anything I’ll have as far as access to an airplane I pay for,” Goodell said.
So there’s the answer. No free plane for life.
Contrary to the much-ballyhooed claim from ESPN that Goodell wanted free private jet service until he goes wheels up (or down) for the last time, Goodell wanted only the ability to use the NFL’s private jet service, with reimbursement to the league, noted NBC Sports.
