Roger Goodell Reportedly "Furious" At Being Offered Non-Guaranteed Contract

Catalina Fragoso-USA TODAY Sports

Last year's First-Team All-Pro has been locked in one court appeal after another for the entire 2017 National Football League season thus far.

However, Goodell is also reportedly furious about one of the new conditions that could come with a new deal.

Things are getting heated in the NFL league office, with Jerry Jones getting so steamed over the Ezekiel Elliott and national anthem situations that he is threatening to sue the NFL if it proceeds with Roger Goodell's contract extension.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones might be stirring up some controversy.

Elliott has continued to play while the issue works its way through the courts, but Jones still seems to have turned on Goodell over the suspension.

WOW air plans flights out of JFK
Good news, New Yorkers - Iceland's low-priced airline, WOW Air , will be offering flights out of JFK beginning April 26, 2018. The flight between Reykjavik and JFK is scheduled to be just over six hours and will be flown daily.

As to the possibility of Jones filing a lawsuit against the NFL, Lockhart said he's not aware of it happening yet, and that whether a lawsuit will be filed is a question to be put to Mr. Jones.

"Most owners would admit that Roger has done a bad job handling the anthem controversy and a awful job explaining the [TV] ratings declines, a awful job on any number of other issues". "I don't know how he'd be able to continue if that many owners express a lack of confidence in him". He has served as commissioner since 2006.

"A silent majority of owners believe Goodell's performance has been poor but still support him because they prefer to have Goodell lead the owners' side in labor negotiations with the players' union". Although, one could argue that Goodell is making more than his fair share, with the most recent reports indicating he's making over $34 million a year.

Jones told the six owners on the league's compensation committee last week that he had hired David Boies, the high-profile lawyer under fire in the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment case, according to the people, who declined to speak publicly about internal league matters. "The incentives thing really angers him".
