TIMEOUT: Should the NFL Extend Roger Goodell's Contract?

  • Roger Goodell reportedly wants more than a massive salary in his next contract with the NFL

Through a letter from Cowboys counsel, Jones said Blank, who is the head of the NFL's compensation committee, misled the league's 32 owners about the details of the contract and that the owners are not unanimous on Goodell's extension, according to an ESPN report.

Roger Goodell (right) is reportedly seeking $49.5million per year, a private jet for life and health insurance for his family to stay on at the NFL.

"The reality is where Roger's contract would be is roughly the same amount of money that he is making now and with that being many specific performance clauses that would be voted on by numerous owners as each year comes up", he said.

The ongoing battle between Jerry Jones and Roger Goodell is more compelling than a lot of the NFL's on-field action has been this season.

Two NFL sources disputed the ESPN report.

Goodell suspended Elliott following a year-long investigation by the league after prosecutors in OH declined to pursue the domestic violence case, citing conflicting evidence.




The terms of Goodell's deal are being considered by a compensation committee comprising six owners: Arthur Blank of the Falcons, Clark Hunt of the Chiefs, Robert K. Kraft of the Patriots, John Mara of the Giants, Bob McNair of the Texans and Art Rooney of the Steelers.

Goodell's leadership has been tested most recently by the protests.

He said last month that "we want our players to stand" during the anthem, but stopped short of imposing a rule for players to do so.

Another owner told the sports network that "Roger is defiant", and they don't believe he'll "take a pay cut" or resign as commissioner of the NFL.

Some fans have said protests are disrespectful to the American flag and to the military, and have boycotted the NFL. His salary was cut continually between 2012, when he made $44.2 million, and 2015.

Jones isn't alone. Few of the top stories of late in the National Football League concern actual gameplay; between protest controversies, criticism from the White House, farcical disciplinary courtroom gymnastics involving Ezekiel Elliott and the ever-present question of concussions, the National Football League stumbles from crisis to crisis like a quarterback in the open field.
