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.
The New Yorker reported on Monday Boies executed the contract between Weinstein and an intelligence firm he hired to spy on accusers and journalists working on stories about the producer's history of alleged sexual harassment and assault.
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 is furious that his next contract might be performance-based. Jones has been extremely pro-Goodell over the past few years, right up until the commish made a decision to suspend Elliott for six games.
While there are plenty of criticisms of Goodell, including questions about television ratings and much of the attention for this season on player anthem protests, it's easy to wonder if Jones is getting back at Goodell for suspending his star running back Ezekiel Elliott.

Though the sources didn't know that person's identity, the fact that Jones might be teeing up his own candidate has lost him potential support in ousting Goodell.
"I'm sure he'd like to take back his initial Ray Rice stance, and a few others", Jones said of the commissioner on the radio.
Numerous players joined Kaepernick in protest, disappointing and disgusting legions of National Football League fans and at least one team owner. Jones is one of the most powerful owners in the league, but he's in a battle he may struggle to win.
Bringing on such a high-profile figure to help upend Goodell's suspension is a clear indication that Jones is not messing around here. Jones, by the way, owns more than 100 Papa John's franchises.
