ESPN Extends NFL Rights In $2B Deal

ESPN and the NFL have agreed to broad terms on a new media rights deal that will be worth nearly $2 billion per year. Specific numbers still are difficult to confirm, but multiple sources say ESPN has told the NFL that it will increase its annual rights fee by 40%, which means it will pay the league a record fee, between $1.8 billion and $1.9 billion a year.
