  • Cowboys owner Jerry Jones reportedly thinks NFL commish Roger Goodell makes too much money

National Football League owners selected a compensation committee of six of their peers to negotiate Goodell's contract, and Jones is not one of the six.

ESPN reported Sunday morning that the Cowboys owner has helped stall contract negotiations between the league's compensation committee and Goodell.

Goodell's extension, which had been expected to be completed before the season, will be discussed in a conference call this week among committee members.

You can certainly see why Jones and Goodell would be at odds, as the league recently suspended Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott for six games as a punishment for an alleged domestic violence incident that took place over a six-day period in July of 2016.

The members of the NFL's compensation committee include chairman Arthur Blank of the Falcons, Clark Hunt (Chiefs), Robert Kraft (Patriots), John Mara (Giants), Bob McNair (Texans) and Art Rooney II (Steelers).

Mortensen expanded on that idea, noting that Jones has essentially become a "de facto" seventh member of the Compensation Committee (which negotiates with Goodell to work out a new deal) and has pushed forward the idea that Goodell is "paid way too much money".

Goodell, who was elected commissioner in 2006, has reportedly made more than $200 million in salary leading the NFL.

"Jerry's not saying, 'Don't hire Roger.' He's saying, 'I hate this (proposed) deal, redo it, '" said one source.

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.

Still, despite that, Goodell is in overall good standing with the majority of the owners in the NFL.

"This is about money and a guy [Goodell] making way too much money on a grossly stupid contract for the job".
