Goodell's 'offensive' list of NFL CEO contract demands

Jerry Jones' war against Roger Goodell could come back to bite him.

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

The terms of Goodell's deal are being considered by a compensation committee comprising six owners: Arthur Blank of the Falcons, Clark Hunt of the Chiefs, Robert K. Kraft of the Patriots, John Mara of the Giants, Bob McNair of the Texans and Art Rooney of the Steelers.

According to ESPN.com, which cited an unidentified source familiar with the negotiations, the last written counterproposal from Goodell on the extension seeks some $50 million per year, as well as other perks such as lifetime medical insurance and use of a private jet. After the meeting between National Football League owners and players held in October, Goodell outlined there will be no change in policy regarding anthem protests.

Goodell's current contract runs out in March 2019 and the commissioner and owners are working on a five-year contract extension.

Jones's issue with Goodell ostensibly began when the Commissioner suspended Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott for six games back in August after the former Ohio State star was accused of domestic violence by his former girlfriend, Tiffany Thompson.

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

"I think just since the period of time that we first addressed extending Roger, I think we've had several material adverse conditions happen", Jones said.

"I really fervently disagree that we shouldn't have him on the playing field", Jones said.

Goodell is dealing with a league in turmoil in 2017.

But months of repeated missteps, failures and black eyes have sawed the legs off that throne, and Goodell now finds his contract extension anything but a rubber-stamp guarantee ... even as he's apparently making some eyebrow-raising contract demands.

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.

"But there is nothing in the book, like standing for the anthem".
