There's news on Commissioner Roger Goodell's contract extension.
Roger Goodell is waiting for a contract extension from NFL owners that will keep him as the league's commissioner for the foreseeable future.
"If not for Jerry, this deal would be done", a source told Schefter regarding Goodell's extension.
Jones - who is at odds with the commish over the NFL's six-game ban handed to his star running back Ezekiel Elliott - reportedly has argued to the committee that Goodell, and other league officials, make too much money.
Here's what PFT reported more than two weeks ago on this very subject: "Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Jones has made himself into, essentially, an ad hoc member of the Compensation Committee". It seemed a deal was on the verge of happening, but now one owner is standing his ground and holding up proceedings: Jerry Jones.
"In Jones' case, according to a source, he believes he is representing the other owners", Mortensen said. "And he believes this thing needs a lot of discussion before they just give him a contract, it's got to be a big reduction, he's made over $200 million since he became commissioner in 2006".
Jones will be on a conference call this week with the compensation committee to discuss Goodell's salary. The major talking points really aren't news - but at least this week it's not year-old news about the Drew Brees contract. That committee consists of chairman Arthur Blank (Falcons), Clark Hunt (Chiefs), Robert Kraft (Patriots), John Mara (Giants), Bob McNair (Texans) and Art Rooney II (Steelers).
There is also the question of whether Goodell will even accept the new terms of an extension, if offered, according to an owner who supports the commissioner.
