There's news on Commissioner Roger Goodell's contract extension.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is reportedly doing his best to slow down Roger Goodell's latest contract negotiations, adding another awkward twist in the saga involving the Dallas Cowboys, Ezekiel Elliott and the NFL.

"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 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.

Here's what PFT reported more than two weeks ago on this very subject: "Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Jones has made himself into, essentially, an ad hoc member of the Compensation Committee".

"In Jones' case, according to a source, he believes he is representing the other owners", Mortensen said.

Goodell has earned more than $200 million since he was elected commissioner in 2006.

The only real news coming out of the ESPN discussion is that a conference call of the Compensation Committee will happen on Wednesday.
