Jerry Jones Isn't Backing Down from the NFL, Goodell

Jerry Jones Isn't Backing Down from the NFL, Goodell

Jones' son Stephen also called talk of a forced sale "laughable" and said neither he nor his father "take it serious" in his interview with 105.3 The Fan. If Jones has a problem with Roger Goodell, then, especially as the owner of the richest franchise in the sport, he should be free to voice his opinion and try to win others to his side.

Goodell's push for an extension has been met with opposition from team owners including the Dallas Cowboys' Jerry Jones who say the timing of the extension could be a public relations disaster. "He has 18 months left on there. We do not intend to publicly comment on our discussions", Blank said.

All of the league's owners, including Jones, voted in May to allow the compensation committee to negotiate the terms of an extension with Goodell without needing further approval.

It made for an icy situation Sunday in Atlanta when Jones and Falcons owner Arthur Blank, chairman of the committee, did not great each other, despite being just a few yards apart on the field pregame. "The negotiations are progressing and we will keep ownership apprised of the negotiations as they move forward".

According to the New York Times (h/t ESPN.com), the NFL's compensation committee has issued a cease-and-desist warning to Jones regarding his threat to sue the National Football League over Goodell's contract negotiations. Another report claimed owners would also consider a so-called "nuclear option" of forcing Jones out of the league altogether.

The New York Times reported Monday that the six owners on the NFL's compensation committee Jones had received a cease-and-desist warning from the six owners on the committee.

Jones' efforts to derail the five-year extension for the commissioner, which has been in the works for months and is almost complete, has annoyed a growing number of owners, who are angry that Jones has tried to hold Goodell's compensation hostage as a way to punish the commissioner for his decision to suspend Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.
