Arthur Blank and Jerry Jones avoid each other before teams play

Curtis Compton AJC

The biggest proponent to seeing Goodell eventually ousted as commissioner would be Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said Thursday that negotiations will continue despite the lawsuit threat and that the league has already authorized the committee to make an extension of Goodell's contract.

The ongoing battle between Jerry Jones and Roger Goodell is more compelling than a lot of the NFL's on-field action has been this season.

"One NFL owner told ESPN that there are 'several owners in this league who don't make $40 million a year.' The owner was referring to the salaries that owners take, which does not include the increase in valuations that each NFL franchise has undergone", the two ESPN insiders noted.

"That number for Roger just seems too much", the owner said.

"The only element of the ESPN report that is true is that there is a regularly scheduled Compensation Committee conference call on Monday". Tack on the fact that Goodell has allowed the league to descend into chaos with the anthem protests, his lack of ability to properly handle player discipline and a host of other problems would be more than enough to justify cutting him loose.

"Jerry was fully on board with this right up until (Elliott's) suspension came down", one ownership source said.

Ultimately the NFL is a private business, league owners can give Goodell a raise if they choose to do so. It doesn't seem that Goodell is going to walk away willingly either.

"I don't sense that at all from him", said a source close to Goodell on whether or not he will leave the job "He has said he's committed to it".

Goodell found a friendlier outlet in The MMQB, which did not report the exact numbers but did suggest that Goodell has not only been open to accepting an incentive-laden deal, but he proposed one. Heck, Jones reportedly hired this high-profile lawyer in an attempt to block a Goodell extension.

As for what is best for the the game of professional football, one could argue that Goodell should be focused on resurrecting the NFL's ratings this year instead of his salary.
