National Football League committee to discuss commissioner contract extension

What will remain interesting is if Jerry Jones can convince enough of the so-called "fence-sitters" in the ownership to join his cavalry. In disbelief. This was an owner [Jones] who, earlier this year, voted in favor of authorizing the committee to do the deal with Roger.

The committee will discuss Goodell's salary, with the commissioner reportedly asking for $49.5 million per year, compared to the $30 million he earns under his current contract, which expires at the end of the 2018 season.

Jones had served as a non-voting, ad-hoc member of the negotiating committee until he was removed at the weekend by Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, who heads the negotiating committee.

Jerry Jones' feud with National Football League owners over Roger Goodell's contract extension made for an awkward afternoon in Atlanta on Sunday.

Blank, according to a report Sunday by Sports Illustrated writer Peter King, was "shocked" and "disappointed" by Jones' threat to sue the league, telling the Cowboys owner, "We may have differences, but this is not the way we resolve them".

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell reportedly has requested almost $50 million per year in addition to the lifetime use of a private jet amid contract negotiations with the league.




Goodell filed his last counterproposal around mid-August and requested $49.5million in pay - up from around $30million now - it has been reported. "We do not intend to publicly comment on our discussions".

"We're not against Roger, we just don't know if this is the time to be talking about a major contract extension when the league certainly has incredible challenges in terms of where we are with the league", Stephen Jones said during an interview with 105.3 The Fan in Dallas.

Goodell suspended Elliott following a year-long investigation by the league after prosecutors in OH declined to pursue the domestic violence case, citing conflicting evidence.

Jones said that he isn't pushing for a review of Goodell's contract because the commissioner suspended Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot six games on allegations of domestic violence.

"I disagree", Jones said on a Dallas radio show.

"It's about concussions, Jones vs. Goodell, [Ezekiel Elliott's suspension], the anthem".
