National Football League owners committee says Roger Goodell contract talks are 'progressing'

Lifetime Private Jet? $50 Million? The Jerry Jones Camp Wants Roger Goodell to Look Very Greedy; NFL Fired Back at Mort & Schefter

The empire has begun to strike back against Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

Jones acknowledged that he was avoiding Blank later when asked about the awkwardness.

The six-member committee consists of Blank, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Houston Texans owner Bob McNair, Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt, New York Giants co-owner John Mara, and Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney II.

Roger Goodell (right) is reportedly seeking $49.5million per year, a private jet for life and health insurance for his family to stay on at the NFL.

It was reported last week that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones hired a lawyer and threatened National Football League owners on the competition committee with legal action if they passed a contract extension for Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Jones called-out Blank during the week regarding NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's contract extension.

The negotiations with Goodell has become controversial with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones reportedly threatened to sue if the league goes forward with the deal. Jones has also been against the proposed terms for Goodell's contract extension, feeling Goodell makes too much money already and that the proposed incentive-based deal would still pay Goodell a similar amount of money.

Goodell filed his last counterproposal around mid-August and requested $49.5million in pay - up from around $30million now - it has been reported.

"Certainly, we have things we need to discuss that weren't on the table last spring", Jones said. "These changing conditions must be weighed relative to the timing of the Commissioner's contract extension".

Jones is also upset over Goodell's treatment of his star running back, Ezekiel Elliott, who was suspended six games earlier this season for domestic violence allegations.

Jones said his relationship with Goodell, and issues related to his compensation, are deeper than his recent concern over the league's handling of Elliott's case.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones, Jerry Jones' son, said during a radio interview Monday that he and his father "want what's in the best interest of the league".
