Rather, Jones has said that he is trying to make Goodell's contract talks more transparent in light of what he calls recent missteps by the league office, including how it has handled the protests by players.
Goodell is dealing with a league in turmoil in 2017.
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.
A spokesman for the National Football League said all 32 owners agreed previously to give the committee the authority to decide whether Goodell should get an extension.
The six-member committee consists of Blank, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Houston Texans owner Bob McNair, Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt, New York Giants co-owner John Mara, and Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney II.
ESPN reported Sunday that Goodell's last written counterproposal, sent to the committee around August 1, was seeking approximately $49.5 million in annual salary and also included the lifetime use of a private jet and lifetime health insurance for his family.
And many place the blame squarely on the shoulders of Goodell, who has chosen to rule with an iron fist in some disputes and dispassion bordering on passivity in others.

He said last month that "we want our players to stand" during the anthem, but stopped short of imposing a rule for players to do so.
Some fans have said protests are disrespectful to the American flag and to the military, and have boycotted the NFL.
Falcons owner and chairman of the NFL Compensation Committee Arthur Blank released a statement about Roger Goodell's contract extension on behalf of the committee Monday, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Goodell, 58, has been commisioner since 2006.
