Jerry Jones losing backing from National Football League owners over outbursts, report says

Goodell, who now makes approximately $30 million per year, reportedly is seeking an annual salary of almost $50 million, a private jet for life and lifetime health insurance for his family.

The committee will discuss a compensation package for Goodell who now makes around $30 million per year.

The NFL has been in trouble ever since hundreds of players protested during the national anthem and its brand become one of the most divisive in the entire country.

Falcons owner Arthur Blank and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones did not meet or shake hands before their teams played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Sunday.

Golden Tate caught six passes for 97 yards and a score, while cornerback Nevin Lawson returned a fumble 44 yards for a touchdown. The Lions answered back with a pair of touchdowns to take a 31-24 lead with just under 11 minutes remaining in the game.

Ultimately the NFL is a private business, league owners can give Goodell a raise if they choose to do so. One owner said, "You don't get to have this many messes over the years like Roger has had and survive it". "It's offensive. It's unseemly". Roger Goodell, the NFL's commissioner, has chosen to allow the protests to continue and to not take any action against players, but recently it seems that decision could be costing him.

While executive vice president of communications Joe Lockhart denied the exact figure, the ESPN source said Goodell is standing firm on his demands. "He's not going to resign; he's not going to take a pay cut".

There also are those in the league who believe the only way Goodell would not stay on as commissioner would be if he walked away. "He can stand to show some humility, but he won't listen to staff". The committee has found consistent support for a new Goodell deal.

"I'm willing to bet on myself", Goodell said in a months-ago meeting with the committee, willing to forfeit much of the money that his current deal now guarantees in lieu of earning the bonuses. Heck, Jones reportedly hired this high-profile lawyer in an attempt to block a Goodell extension. But, Goodell's power to suspend Brady for 4 games stemmed from the judge's ruling that "the Commissioner was authorized to impose discipline for, among other things, "conduct detrimental to the integrity of, or public confidence, in the game of professional football".
