Financial impacts of the coronavirus have reached the NFL in form of pay cuts and furloughs.
According to a memo issued to league employees, NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell, has given up his salary temporarily.
Goodell reduced his $40 million annual salary to $0 earlier this month.
The league is also implementing reductions in base salary for league staffers beginning with the pay period ending May 22. 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.
