Committee wants Jerry Jones to stop threatening Roger Goodell talks

Committee wants Jerry Jones to stop threatening Roger Goodell talks”

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.

Blank is the head of the NFL's Compensation Committee, and is one of the key players in Goodell's negotiations.

According to ESPN.com, which cited an unidentified source familiar with the negotiations, the last written counterproposal from Goodell on the extension seeks some $50 million per year, as well as other perks such as lifetime medical insurance and use of a private jet.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell reportedly has requested almost $50 million per year in addition to the lifetime use of a private jet amid contract negotiations with the league. Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, has changed his mind since the National Football League spring meeting, and is now trying to stall the deal regarding Goodell's five-year extension.

Jones has grown increasingly concerned about the structure and compensation of Goodell's proposed contract.

After Jones accused Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank and the other member of the NFL's compensation committee of misleading the rest of the owners about Roger Goodell's contract extension, the League responded by claiming Jones was misleading others.

"We're not against Roger, we just don't know if this is the time to be talking about a major contract extension when the league certainly has incredible challenges in terms of where we are with the league", Stephen Jones said during an interview with 105.3 The Fan in Dallas.

The negotiations with Goodell has become controversial with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones reportedly threatened to sue if the league goes forward with the deal.

"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.

Goodell's current contract is slated to expire in 2019. The NFL said there were three incidents over five days.

I never thought I'd be on the side of Jerry Jones, but here I am.

"It's about concussions, Jones vs. Goodell, [Ezekiel Elliott's suspension], the anthem".
