Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says he is one of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s biggest supporters, but some would say otherwise with the report of recent contract talks being stalled by Jones. Jones has recently said that he thinks the negotiations on Goodell’s contract needed to ‘slow down’ with a reported 18-months left on Goodell’s current deal. But many experts think the deal is expected to be done at or before the next owners’ meeting in Dallas. The new contract would reportedly pay Goodell close to $40 million a year starting in 2019 and running through 2023. “All owners should be holding the (NFL) Commissioner accountable in my view, that’s the gist of this thing,” said Jones on his weekly radio show with The Fan’s Shan & RJ. “The commissioner is very powerful…maybe the most powerful, relative to his constituency” said Jones.
