Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, has escalated a feud with Goodell, threatening to sue the league and some fellow team owners over negotiations to extend Goodell's contract, according to three people with direct knowledge of the situation.
"A person who spoke recently with Goodell said the commissioner is "furious" about Jones" and other owners" insistence that his next contract's compensation should be more performance-based, including incentives that would allow him to be paid at roughly the same level of his current deal.
The moves reportedly stemmed from Jones' anger over Ezekiel Elliott's pending six-game suspension over domestic-violence allegations and disappointment with league leadership over matters like players' protests during the national anthem.

According to ESPN, Goodell made $212.5 million from 2006 through 2015.
Elliott has continued to play while the issue works its way through the courts, but Jones still seems to have turned on Goodell over the suspension.
However, Goodell is also reportedly furious about one of the new conditions that could come with a new deal. It's a mission that has reportedly set him at odds against his fellow National Football League owners, including Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt. Jones is considered one of the most powerful and influential owners in the league.

Jones is one of the owners who helped to give Goodell nearly unlimited power in terms of his ability to punish players.
ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen reported in October that the Atlanta Falcons' owner, Arthur Blank, the committee member they described as the "point man" for a Goodell extension, had invited Jones on as an "ad hoc committee adviser". The owner has said he'd bench any player who did not stand for "The Star-Spangeled Banner", while Goodell only said he preferred that players would not kneel.
