Jerry Jones impeding Roger Goodell's contract negotiations

Jerry Jones has reportedly 'impeded' Roger Goodell's contract extension talks

Though not one of the three owners who officially joined the three existing owners in May for the purposes of negotiating Commissioner Roger Goodell's extension, committee chairman Arthur Blank has allowed Jones to have a role and a voice in the process of hammering out Goodell's proposed new deal.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has impeded talks for negotiations of a contract extension for National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell, according to Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen of ESPN.

That does not include Jones.

Goodell's deal was expected to be completed before this season began, but due to his issues with Jones, his long-term future as National Football League commissioner may very well be in question.

It would be easy, but wrong, to view this as Jones being vindictive about the NFL's ongoing legal battle against Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott.

Pochettino defends Spurs after Swansea stalemate
It wasn't Spurs' night, no more so when Kane somehow rattled the crossbar from six-yards out after Moussa Sissoko's cut-back. This has earned him 32 points on Fantasy Football, more than any other player from the opening four games of the season.

While some owners believe a deal will be agreed upon, others aren't quite as sure thanks to Jones, who has interjected himself into the process of the NFL's six-man compensation committee, becoming the unofficial seventh member.

The increasingly edgy relationship between Jones and Goodell has sharpened to the point where Goodell's long-term future could be in question, according to league sources.

McNair also has called for a dramatic restructuring of Goodell's contract, sources said. "And he believes this thing needs a lot of discussion before they just give him a contract, it's got to be a big reduction, he's made over $200 million since he became commissioner in 2006".

"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 was unavailable for comment.
