NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will cut his salary to $1 if there is a work stoppage after the collective-bargaining agreement expires in March.
Goodell, who makes about $10 million a year including bonuses, said in a memo to his staff Wednesday that chief negotiator Jeff Pash will do the same. Pash makes nearly $5 million a year.
Goodell also has asked the league’s compensation committee to delay any bonus payments to him until after a deal is reached with the NFL Players Association.
“Let me emphasize that we are fully committed to doing everything possible to reach a new collective-bargaining agreement without any disruption to our business,” Goodell said. “The entire senior leadership team stands with me in its commitment to resolving the CBA issues with the players union.”
