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

Goodell's current deal expires in 2019.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is reportedly doing his best to slow down Roger Goodell's latest contract negotiations, adding another awkward twist in the saga involving the Dallas Cowboys, Ezekiel Elliott and the NFL.

Jones has argued persistently for months to the committee that other owners believe Goodell makes "way too much money" and demands a pay cut and a radical change in the formula that compensates the commissioner.

A contract extension for National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell is reportedly being held up by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen.

"If not for Jerry, this deal would be done", Schefter said.

'Slender Man' trial underway in Wisconsin for Anissa Weier
Geyser has pleaded not guilty by reason of mental disease to being a party to first-degree attempted intentional homicide. Melissa Westendorf was appointed by a judge to evaluate one of the girls, Anissa Weier , now 15, after her insanity plea.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that Jones has inserted himself into the discussions of the previously six-man Compensation Committee. Jones has maintained Elliott's innocence and was reportedly angry with the suspension.

"If not for Jerry", one person familiar with the contract negotiations said this weekend, "this deal would be done". "There are people who are still pushing for that deal, but right now there's some opposition as well".

The compensation committee includes Giants owner John Mara, Robert Kraft of the Patriots (who also has a strained relationship with the commish over Deflategate), Arthur Blank of the Falcons, Clark Hunt of the Chiefs, Bob McNair of the Texans and Art Rooney of the Steelers. Goodell made almost $32 million in fiscal year 2015, according to the league's tax filing from that year, and has made $212.5 million in his first 10 years as commissioner.

The next big part of the process will be on Wednesday, when the NFL Compensation Committee has a conference call scheduled to discuss Goodell's extension.
