The New York Times reported over the weekend that the committee will meet Monday to discuss Goodell's new contract, a discussion that has taken on a new edge since Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has voiced his displeasure with Goodell's role in shaping the current state of the league.

Joe Lockhart, league spokesman, confirmed the Compensation Committee will hold a conference call on Monday, but denied every other part of the ESPN report, saying it has "no basis in fact".

The ongoing battle between Jerry Jones and Roger Goodell is more compelling than a lot of the NFL's on-field action has been this season.

Jones has taken issue with the discretionary bonuses, which appear as incentives but have been presented to Goodell as a near certainty without the knowledge of the other owners, according to ESPN.

Goodell, whose proposed contract with the NFL now is undergoing an approval process, asked the league's compensation committee in August to raise his salary from $30 million to $49.5 million per year, ESPN reported Sunday. "Regardless of what may have been reported, the Committee is working within the financial parameters outlined to the ownership at the May meeting".

Blank, according to a report Sunday by Sports Illustrated writer Peter King, was "shocked" and "disappointed" by Jones' threat to sue the league, telling the Cowboys owner, "We may have differences, but this is not the way we resolve them. We do not intend to publicly comment on our discussions". "These changing conditions must be weighed relative to the timing of the Commissioner's contract extension".

This source also said owners are wary of replacing Goodell so soon before the league's collective bargaining agreement with the players expires, in 2020.

Jones said his relationship with Goodell, and issues related to his compensation, are deeper than his recent concern over the league's handling of Elliott's case.
