National Football League owners weigh contract extension for Roger Goodell

14 November, 2017, 02:01 | Author: Christina Harvey

However, Goodell apparently believes he's doing a fine job and would like to continue doing it. ESPN reported Sunday morning that Goodell's contractual demands, made in early August, included a $50 million annual salary, the lifetime use of a private jet and lifetime insurance for his family.

Goodell is making $30 million this season.

Sports contributor Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com says multiple owners have discussed the possibility after Jones threatened to sue individual owners if they extend NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's contract.

While reportedly considering a lawsuit against the NFL, Jones went so far as to hire high-profile lawyer David Boies, who defended scandalized Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein against accusations of sexual harassment.

Jones has pushed back against the National Football League possibly extending Goodell's contract, even hiring lawyer David Boies and threatening a potential lawsuit if the transaction goes through. The longtime face of the Cowboys could sue the league if Goodell's extension is completed without review or approval from the NFL's 32 teams.




And many place the blame squarely on the shoulders of Goodell, who has chosen to rule with an iron fist in some disputes and dispassion bordering on passivity in others.

The commissioner would have to impose the penalties, and is reluctant to do so without a groundswell of owners pushing him to take action, according to several people with knowledge of the situation. League rules say only that players "should" stand. The NFL said there were three incidents over five days.

"Leadership starts at the top, and this is an example of poor leadership", Schnatter said, words that owners wonder if Jones had a hand in.

Fox cameras noticed that the Cowboys and Falcons owners did not exchange pregame pleasantries despite standing just yards from one another at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Goodell and Jones have had their rivalry intensified by the recent suspension of Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott. Between 2008 and 2015, he was paid more than $205 million.
