Goodell's current contract is slated to expire in 2019.

The contract discussion comes at a hard moment for the league, which faces declining TV ratings, growing concerns about brain damage and domestic violence, and player protests over racial injustice.

"The Committee is continuing its work towards finalizing a contract extension with the Commissioner, consistent with the mandate provided in the unanimous May 2017 Resolution".

Those six are expected to talk by phone on Monday.

Goodell also reportedly requested the lifetime use of a private jet and health insurance for his family, but Ganis struck down those claims as well.

Jones has denied that he is seeking revenge for Goodell's decision to suspend Elliott for six games for violating the league's personal conduct policy. His salary was cut continually between 2012, when he made $44.2 million, and 2015. Goodell, 58, has been commisioner since 2006. Between 2008 and 2015, he was paid more than $205 million.
