Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wants National Football League chief investigator Lisa Friel fired

Now, he's running interference on National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell's contract extension negotiations and he's reportedly also taking aim at another high-level National Football League executive.

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.

The five-year extension that was reportedly imminent for National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell in late August has yet to be officially confirmed and we may now know why. In his tenure with the National Football League he has been paid over $200 million, and in 2015 earn $44 million.

"If not for Jerry, this deal would be done", said one person familiar with Goodell's contract negotiations.

Jones had denied he is a member of the NFL's compensation committee, but Mortensen reports Jones is an unofficial seventh member of the committee, and will be involved in the next compensation committee conference call on Wednesday.


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.

He recently drew the ire of Jones with his decision to suspend Cowboys star RB Ezekiel Elliott despite the investigators recommendation of no discipline.

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 NFL's collective bargaining agreement is set to expire after the 2020 season, and NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith said last month he believes there will be a work stoppage in 2021.
