It is in line with an ESPN report on Sunday that Jones is impeding Goodell's contract negotiations.
The report states that Goodell's long-term future could be in jeopardy as he faces backlash from Jones - only his latest in-house combatant - following his four-game suspension of Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott for violating the league's domestic violence protocol.
A contract extension for National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell is reportedly being held up by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen. But that was before an angry Jones, an unofficial seventh member of the NFL's six-man compensation committed, interjected himself in the process.
During last season, Roger Goodell made an enemy out of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft. The NFL's compensation committee is now working out a proposal to extend Goodell's existing contract beyond its current 2019 expiration date, and at least one owner wants to get serious about scaling back the commissioner's pay going forward.
"If not for Jerry, this deal would be done", said one person familiar with Goodell's contract negotiations. One other owner, Bob McNair of the Texans, who is on the board also reportedly has called for restructuring of Goodell's contract.
"This is about money and a guy [Goodell] making way too much money on a grossly stupid contract for the job", a source said. Goodell made almost $32 million in fiscal year 2015, according to the league's tax filing from that year, and has made $212.5 million in his first 10 years as commissioner.
The situation could come to a head on a conference call Wednesday when the compensation committee will discuss a term proposal for Goodell, per ESPN.
