Jones reportedly is upset with how much money Goodell makes and feels like his next contract should be dramatically restructured to keep him from having years like 2015 when he made $44 million thanks to a new broadcast deal for the league.
Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen of ESPN reported Sunday that Jones has been leading a group of people who have some opposition to Goodell's proposed extension.More news: Anna Nordqvist defeats Brittany Altomare on first playoff hole in Evian Championship
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is trying to impede the progress of National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell receiving a contract extension, according to a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen. But that was before an angry Jones, an unofficial seventh member of the NFL's six-man compensation committed, interjected himself in the process.
"Jerry's not saying, 'Don't hire Roger.' He's saying, 'I hate this [proposed] deal; redo it, '" said one source.More news: Ready to hand over Gaza to Palestinian President: Hamas

According to ESPN, there is a conference call with the compensation committee to discuss a deal and Jones, despite not being on the committee, will be on the call. According to ESPN, Goodell has made $200 million since becoming commissioner in 2006. The NFL is no longer required to file his salary as the league office has given up its non-profit status, thus salary figures are no longer available. Five years later, Goodell succeeded Tagliabue. That enraged Elliott, the Cowboys and the NFLPA and is the crux of their appeal of the suspension in the court system.
