|Goodell, Pash Slice Salaries to $1 During NFL Lockout
|NEW YORK (AP) -- NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and league general counsel Jeff Pash are slashing their salaries to $1 each during the lockout.
Goodell and Pash promised in January that during a work stoppage they would cut their salaries. Goodell makes about $10 million a year, including bonuses. Pash earns nearly $5 million.
Goodell also has asked the league's compensation committee to delay any bonus payments to him until there is a deal with the players' union.
Also taking cuts will be all league personnel at the New York headquarters, NFL Films in Mount Laurel, N.J., and at NFL Network and NFL.com in Culver City, Calif. For now, salaries for those league employees will be reduced by 12 percent, an amount equal to two weeks' pay.
