National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell earned $34.1 million in salary and bonus in 2014, a year in which Ray Rice’s high-profile domestic assault case prompted some women’s advocacy groups to call for Goodell’s ouster.

Goodell, who turns 57 this week, received $3.5 million in base pay, with a $26.5 million bonus deferred from 2013 and other incentives that bring the total to $34.1 million, according to the league’s tax filings. His salary has been roughly flat for the last two years: He earned $35 million in 2013 and $35.1 million in 2012 (plus $9.1 million in compensation deferred from 2011).
