National Football League owners weigh contract extension for Roger Goodell

  • Lifetime Private Jet? $50 Million? The Jerry Jones Camp Wants Roger Goodell to Look Very Greedy; NFL Fired Back at Mort & Schefter

One owner believes Jones wants to "overthrow" Goodell. In disbelief. This was an owner [Jones] who, earlier this year, voted in favor of authorizing the committee to do the deal with Roger.

ESPN reported Sunday that Goodell's last written counterproposal, sent to the committee around August 1, was seeking approximately $49.5 million in annual salary and also included the lifetime use of a private jet and lifetime health insurance for his family.

It looks like the owners' disagreement on how to handle the Roger Goodell contract extension is beginning to affect their social graces.

Jones, who is the bigger-than-life owner of the top NFL franchise, has threatened to sue to stop the league from re-upping commissioner Roger Goodell's contract and has been outspoken in opposing players who sit or kneel for the national anthem.

Goodell appears set to remain in his current role; forcing him out would require a two-thirds majority of owners, and Jones doesn't appear to have that kind of coalition mobilised.

ESPN reported Sunday morning that the committee, which consists of six owners, will speak on a conference call Monday, less than a week after reports that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has informed members of the group that he planned to block the extension with a lawsuit. Most recently regarding the six-game suspension of Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.

Trump responds to his Twitter account getting temporarily deleted
Mr Trump's Twitter output has always been a source of controversy, especially since his entry into politics. With any past president, a tweet like that would immediately be assumed as the result of some sort of hack.


Jones, a non-voting member of the committee, is reportedly looking to sue the league if Goodell's extension is completed without final approval from the league's 32 teams.

"I think it's laughable", Stephen Jones said.

Goodell, whose existing contract runs through next season, has offered to give up "the majority of his contract guarantees" for a deal that would peg more of his pay to performance incentives, the source told CNNMoney. The NFL said there were three incidents over five days.

Jones also has been accused of pushing the chief executive of Papa John's, a pizza chain and a league sponsor, to discredit the commissioner and of leaking false information about the details of Goodell's contract negotiations.

Jones said his relationship with Goodell, and issues related to his compensation, are deeper than his recent concern over the league's handling of Elliott's case.
