Vengeful Jerry Jones now could be Roger Goodell's downfall

After a Sports Business Daily report last month indicated Goodell was close to re-upping as National Football League commissioner, a septuagenarian thorn has appeared in those contract extension plans: Jerry Jones.

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.

While Jones has made it no secret that he is furious about Elliott's suspension, Mortensen and Schefter report that his issue with Goodell's proposed extension is more about how much money the commissioner is making.

Back in August, it was reported that Goodell and NFL owners were close to agreeing to a five-year contract extension for the head of the league that would take Goodell through 2024. Goodell's current deal as commissioner expires in 2019.

Jones is not a part of the NFL's six-man compensation committee, the group that decides Goodell's fate and contractual status.

So Jones' disappointment and anger were palpable when Goodell announced a six-game suspension for Elliott Aug. 11.

The official committee is comprised of Arthur Blank (Atlanta Falcons), Lamar Hunt (Kansas City Chiefs), Robert Kraft (New England Patriots), John Mara (New York Giants), Bob McNair (Houston Texans) and Art Rooney II (Pittsburgh Steelers).

The increasingly edgy relationship between Jones and Goodell has sharpened to the point where Goodell's long-term future as NFL commissioner could come under fire, according to league sources. Goodell made almost $32 million in fiscal year 2015, according to the league's tax filing from that year, and has made $212.5 million in his first 10 years as commissioner.
