 NEW YORK (AP) - NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell made $44.2 million in 2012, according to tax returns the league has submitted. Goodell earned $35.1 million in salary, bonus and pension compensation.

Based on IRS reporting guidelines, his total 2012 compensation includes a $5 million incentive payment and a $4.1 million pension payment from the 2011 lockout year that was paid in 2012.

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank said the compensation to Goodell "reflects the value of his leadership and the success of the NFL at the highest levels." The league's revenues have approached $10 billion.
