Cowboys' Jones impeding Goodell contract talks

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

However, ESPN also reported that the tension between Jones and Goodell is such that Goodell's long-term future "could be in question".

It was revealed on Sunday Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was responsible for the delay and quite possibly even the complete stoppage of a contract extension for National Football League commissioner, Roger Goodell.

This season, Goodell has seemingly made an enemy out of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who seems dead-set on suspending Ezekiel Elliott for player misconduct-despite the mounting evidence that his domestic violence accuser has been lying throughout the entire process.

"If not for Jerry, this deal would be done", Schefter said.

Goodell reportedly had been in line for a new deal, which was believed to be a coup d'etat.

"One person with direct involvement in those talks said that if it weren't for Jerry's involvement, Goodell's extension by now could be done". Jones has maintained Elliott's innocence and was reportedly angry with the suspension.

Trojans win an instant classic against Texas with field goal in 2OT
But after the USC defense was gassed over the final minutes of regulation, Texas' defense was gassed in the seconds that followed. Ajene Harris recovered, but the Trojans' offense stalled before McGrath came through again.

While not an official member of the committee that leads the discussion for Goodell's next contract, Jones has recently taken a larger role and is now considered the unofficial seventh member.

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

The situation could come to a head on a conference call Wednesday when the compensation committee will discuss a term proposal for Goodell, per ESPN.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell makes more money than most anyone in the world of sports on an annual basis and most of the league's owners have been pretty happy to let him make that much as the NFL has reached record levels of prosperity on Goodell's watch.

Jones will be on the call.
