Goodell, who took over as league commissioner in 2006, has his current contract set to expire in 2019.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is reportedly threatening to sue the National Football League and several owners over contract negotiations with embattled commissioner Roger Goodell, going so far as to hire high-profile lawyer David Boies, who defended scandalized Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein against accusations of sexual harassment. Jones has claimed Elliott is a victim of a suspension "overcorrection" by Goodell.
Jones reportedly was removed as an ad-hoc member of the NFL's Compensation Committee after the conference call that took place November 2, according to Belson.
According to Belson, Jones informed six owners of his hiring of Boies, a high-profile lawyer now involved in the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment case.
And while Jones is not officially on the NFL's six-man compensation committee which is working on the Goodell contract, as the most powerful and influential owner in the league, he has injected himself as an unofficial seventh member.

Launched against 11 major game publishers (including EA and WB Games ) on October 21st 2016, the strike lasted 340 days in total. These bonus payments begin with an extra $75 for the first session and can add up to $2,100 after the completion of 10 sessions.
It doesn't look like Jones plans on simmering down anytime soon.
ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen reported in October that Jones was the leading voice of a group of owners who wanted to delay Goodell's contract extension. As Belson noted, Jones is potentially taking on the league, Goodell, and fellow owners.
It's been reported that Goodell has the support of some owners who believe he has done a good job as commissioner at taking hits to the league.
"Roger is seen as having done a great job in the labor negotiations last time - that fact alone saves him with some owners", an executive said.
"Then Jerry will be completely in control of the league", one source said.
Boies has argued several high-profile cases in front of the U.S. Supreme Court, but he made headlines this week after a story in The New Yorker revealed he allegedly helped Weinstein use private investigators to block a negative article about him in the New York Times.
