NFL Could Punish Jerry Jones for Trying to Stop Commissioner's Deal

NFL Could Punish Jerry Jones for Trying to Stop Commissioner's Deal

Jones has taken issue with the discretionary bonuses, which appear as incentives but have been presented to Goodell as a near certainty without the knowledge of the other owners, according to ESPN.

However, Goodell apparently believes he's doing a fine job and would like to continue doing it. ESPN reported Sunday morning that Goodell's contractual demands, made in early August, included a $50 million annual salary, the lifetime use of a private jet and lifetime insurance for his family.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones threatened to serve legal papers if the NFL's competition committee approved a contract extension for Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Falcons owner and chairman of the NFL Compensation Committee Arthur Blank released a statement about Roger Goodell's contract extension on behalf of the committee Monday, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Jones said that he isn't pushing for a review of Goodell's contract because the commissioner suspended Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot six games on allegations of domestic violence.

Zampella also lauded EA for letting Respawn do its thing without interference, and allowing the studio to grow its own culture. Those bonuses apply to games that will be developed until 2023.

The action would be under the guise of Goodell himself concluding that Jones "has been or is guilty of conduct detrimental to the welfare of the League or professional football".

"I think just since the period of time that we first addressed extending Roger, I think we've had several material adverse conditions happen", Jones said.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones, Jerry Jones' son, said during a radio interview Monday that he and his father "want what's in the best interest of the league".

Goodell is dealing with a league in turmoil in 2017.

In the letter sent to the compensation committee and National Football League counsel, it stated Jones "has discovered a number of very concerning issues", including a contention that Blank has "misled" the owners not serving on the committee and that "critical facts" have been misrepresented. The NFL hasn't changed a guideline that encourages but does not require players to stand during the anthem. A source told King that members of the committee were going back to owners with details of the proposed deal for Goodell to gauge their reactions.
