Dallas Cowboys' Jones impeding extension for National Football League commissioner Goodell

Mortensen reports a more concrete term proposal for Goodell could come this week at the compensation committee's conference call on Wednesday, but no contract appears to be imminent.

Jones believes that he represents a larger group of the owners within the league that are not on board with a potential extension for Goodell at the current rates of compensation he's received recently.

Roger Goodell's long-term future as National Football League commissioner could be in doubt thanks to Jerry Jones.

"One person with direct involvement in those talks said that if it weren't for Jerry's involvement, Goodell's extension by now could be done".

Jones has been added as an unofficial seventh member of the NFL's six-man compensation committee, which is seemingly bad news for Goodell.

The NFL is now in a court battle with Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott, who remains eligible to play under an injunction despite the league's six-game suspension for alleged domestic violence.

The next step for Goodell's contract talk comes Wednesday, when the committee has a conference call that's meant to wrap up a specific term proposal for Goodell.

The 58-year-old Goodell succeeded Paul Tagliabue in September 2006.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell makes more money than most anyone in the world of sports on an annual basis and most of the league's owners have been pretty happy to let him make that much as the NFL has reached record levels of prosperity on Goodell's watch. He was appointed executive vice president and chief operating officer by Tagliabue in 2001.

It would be more fun if Jones had just generally turned on Goodell, but his gripe is reportedly over Goodell's outsized salary, as well as the salaries of "several other employees in the league office".
