NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is said to be seeking a contract extension that would provide him with a $20 million raise and lifetime use of a private jet, sources confirmed to CNBC.

Frisco - Two heavyweights in our nation's most popular sport on opposite sides of the ring, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is refusing to back down from the fight he's picked over NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's proposed new contract.

ProFootballTalk reported Monday NFL owners have discussed the possibility of Jones forfeiting the Cowboys franchise over possible "conduct detrimental to the welfare of the League or professional football".

"Roger has nearly 18 months left". "We've got all the time in the world to evaluate what we're doing, and all the time in the world to extend him".

Jones denied a report in the New York Times Monday that said he had been sent a cease-and-desist order from the compensation committee, made up of six owners.

"He's served about 60 percent, roughly, 65 percent of this contract", Jones said on 105.3 The Fan, per Todd Archer of ESPN.

Half of USA adults have high blood pressure in new rules
The new guidelines eliminate the prehypertension category. "Rather, it brings to light the need to make lifestyle changes". In terms of lives, the change translates to a 14% increases in the number of adults classified with high blood pressure.


Jones is more personally invested in this than some other owners because running back Ezekiel Elliott was suspended for six games by Goodell, despite never even facing charges for his domestic violence allegations. He has inserted himself into discussions on Goodell's extension, threatened to sue the league and owners on the compensation committee, and there are some that believe he pushed Papa John's CEO John Schnatter to come after the NFL. That was three months before the Elliott suspension was announced.

Jones' maneuvers have escalated one of the worst fissures in decades in the normally clubby ownership group.

Other owners, according to Florio, are upset with Jones because they believe he encouraged Papa John's CEO John Schnatter to blame the National Football League for failing pizza sales.
