NFL Execs Could Execute 'Nuclear Option' Against Jerry Jones

Roger Goodell wants an awful lot in his new contract. More

One owner believes Jones wants to "overthrow" Goodell. Jones said he disagrees with Blank's assertion that the compensation committee can complete the deal without another vote of all owners.

ESPN reported Sunday that Goodell's last written counterproposal, sent to the committee around August 1, was seeking approximately $49.5 million in annual salary and also included the lifetime use of a private jet and lifetime health insurance for his family.

Jerry Jones' feud with National Football League owners over Roger Goodell's contract extension made for an awkward afternoon in Atlanta on Sunday.

Today's conference call comes on the heels of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones making moves to block Goodell's extension.

The NFL's compensation committee will reconvene Monday to discuss the proposed contract extension for commissioner Roger Goodell, according to multiple reports. "Regardless of what may have been reported, the Committee is working within the financial parameters outlined to the ownership at the May meeting".

"Certainly, we have things we need to discuss that weren't on the table last spring", Jones said.

Legionnaires' disease outbreak at Disneyland sickens nine visitors
Eight of the twelve cases relate to persons visiting Disneyland , as well as someone who worked at the tourist destination. The other three cases were Orange County residents who did not visit the park but lived or traveled in Anaheim.

Blank, the chairman of the six-member committee, terminated Jones as a non-voting, ad-hoc seventh member Saturday because of Jones' threat to sue the league.

"I've been dealing with this commissioner for nearly 28 years, as an employee of the NFL", Jones said on his radio show late last week.

Goodell, whose existing contract runs through next season, has offered to give up "the majority of his contract guarantees" for a deal that would peg more of his pay to performance incentives, the source told CNNMoney.

Some fans have said protests are disrespectful to the American flag and to the military, and have boycotted the NFL.

The owners of the six NFL teams who are considering Goodell's contract - namely the Chiefs, Falcons, Giants, Patriots, Steelers and Texans - revoked Jones' status as an advisory member of the committee following his claims to file a lawsuit against the league.

"It's about concussions, Jones vs. Goodell, [Ezekiel Elliott's suspension], the anthem". The NFL hasn't changed a guideline that encourages but does not require players to stand during the anthem.
