Back in August, it was reported that Goodell and NFL owners were close to agreeing to a five-year contract extension for the head of the league that would take Goodell through 2024.

ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen report that the Dallas Cowboys' owner is impeding Goodell's extension discussions from happening. Jones' involvement in Goodell's contract talks comes within the same time frame as the league's attempted six-game suspension of Elliot, which is now hung up in a court battle.

During last season, Roger Goodell made an enemy out of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

Now, he's running interference on National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell's contract extension negotiations and he's reportedly also taking aim at another high-level National Football League executive.

"If not for Jerry, this deal would be done", Schefter said.

That's when we noticed police and fire vehicles quickly surround the plane and dozens of armed officers and firefighters got out. Each passenger's luggage was individually searched and the aircraft was examined, delaying the flight by at least an hour.


"Jerry's not saying, 'Don't hire Roger.' He's saying, 'I hate this [proposed] deal; redo it, '" one source told ESPN. But that was before an angry Jones, an unofficial seventh member of the NFL's six-man compensation committed, interjected himself in the process. With Jones' involvement, Goodell's future as the commissioner of the league could be in question.

Jones will be on a conference call this week with the compensation committee to discuss Goodell's salary.

So Jones' disappointment and anger were palpable when Goodell announced a six-game suspension for Elliott Aug. 11.

"This is about money and a guy [Goodell] making way too much money on a grossly stupid contract for the job". According to ESPN, Goodell has made $200 million since becoming commissioner in 2006.

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.
