Jerry Jones impeding Roger Goodell extension talks

Jerry Jones impeding Roger Goodell extension talks”

It seemed a deal was on the verge of happening, but now one owner is standing his ground and holding up proceedings: Jerry Jones.

Because of that, Jerry is now reportedly impeding the progress of National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell's contract negotiations, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Goodell's deal was expected to be completed before this season began, but due to his issues with Jones, his long-term future as National Football League commissioner may very well be in question. While some owners believe a contract extension is imminent, another source close to the situation said, "there's no way that happens right now".

Previously, Jones has denied he was a member of the NFL's compensation committee.

You can certainly see why Jones and Goodell would be at odds, as the league recently suspended Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott for six games as a punishment for an alleged domestic violence incident that took place over a six-day period in July of 2016.

The compensation committee includes Giants owner John Mara, Robert Kraft of the Patriots (who also has a strained relationship with the commish over Deflategate), Arthur Blank of the Falcons, Clark Hunt of the Chiefs, Bob McNair of the Texans and Art Rooney of the Steelers. But despite not being a member of the six-person committee, Jones has become involved in negotiations, to the point that ESPN's Adam Schefter reported one source said, "If it weren't for Jerry's involvement, Goodell's extension by now could be done".

Goodell has earned more than $200 million since he was elected commissioner in 2006.

One source even countered, insisting, "This is about money and a guy (Goodell) making way too much money on a grossly stupid contract for the job."
