Goodell reduced his $40 million annual salary to $0 earlier this month.

The reduction will be 5% for workers up to the manager’s level, 7% for directors, 10% for vice presidents, 12% for senior vice presidents, and 15% for executive vice presidents.

Some staffers will also be asked to take furloughs.
