Goodell Takes Pay Cut

The Associated Press reports NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has taken a 20 percent pay cut. The league staff has also been trimmed by 15 percent because of a reeling economy. The NFL said Wednesday, Feb. 25, it has dropped 169 jobs as a result of buyouts, layoffs and other staff reductions. Goodell voluntarily took a cut from the $11 million salary and bonuses he was to receive this past year. He and other league executives are freezing their salaries for 2009.
