Jerry Jones stalling Roger Goodell's new contract as National Football League commish

Jerry Jones stalling Roger Goodell's new contract as National Football League commish

Goodell has since been at the center of punishing Ezekiel Elliott, and Jones has since, according to a report from Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen of ESPN, gotten heavily involved with the contract talks and begun "impeding" them.

There's a lot of breaking news on the Jerry Jones and Roger Goodell front as the National Football League kicks off its second Sunday of regular season action.

Neither Jones nor the National Football League is commenting on the report, and it's unlikely any contract snag will result in Goodell not being the commissioner in the future - but debates are being had internally on whether Goodell is making more money than he deserves.

The next big part of the process will be on Wednesday, when the NFL Compensation Committee has a conference call scheduled to discuss Goodell's extension.

With Jones' involvement, Goodell's future as the commissioner of the league could be in question.

Not helping matters is the ongoing court case between the National Football League and Ezekiel Elliott over Elliott's six-game suspension for alleged domestic violence in July 2016.

She added that it was too soon to know whether the culprits behind the attack were known to the authorities. Police said they are searching a residential address in Stanwell, Surrey, in conjunction with this arrest.

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

The compensation committee includes Giants owner John Mara, Robert Kraft of the Patriots (who also has a strained relationship with the commish over Deflategate), Arthur Blank of the Falcons, Clark Hunt of the Chiefs, Bob McNair of the Texans and Art Rooney of the Steelers.

Goodell has been in the commissioner's office since 2006.

The NFL's collective bargaining agreement is set to expire after the 2020 season, and NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith said last month he believes there will be a work stoppage in 2021.

Elliott, who is appealing the suspension, played in Week 1 and will also take the field in Week 2.
