Compensation Committee ignores Jerry Jones, gives Roger Goodell a new contract

Share

Looks like Jerry Jones didn't get his way after all, as the National Football League owners have reached an agreement to extend the contract of Commissioner Roger Goodell. Our Committee unanimously supports the contract and believes that it is fully consistent with "market" compensation and the financial and other parameters outlined to the owners at our May 2017 meeting, as well as in the best interests of ownership.

It goes on to say that the committee hopes the deal helps 'to avoid further controversy surrounding this issue'. But Cowboys owner Jerry Jones started working to sabotage the process in August, citing concerns over the league's long-term direction and the talks themselves. The war began after Goodell slapped Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott with a six-game suspension after he was accused of domestic violence by an ex-girlfriend.
