National Football League owners explore ousting Jerry Jones over Goodell opposition

National Football League owners explore ousting Jerry Jones over Goodell opposition

Jones is at odds with commissioner Roger Goodell, the man behind Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension, and Jones is reportedly trying to keep Goodell's contract extension from going through.

Cease and desist? That's never been Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' style.

"If somebody is asserting that or thinking about that kind of thing, then they are not knowledgeable about how things work in the National Football League".

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio cited a league source with knowledge of the situation in his reporting.

"(Goodell) has 18 months left on there", Jones said.

Jones claimed Tuesday he just wants the compensation committee to bring any negotiations with Goodell to the rest of the owners for approval.




"The committee that basically negotiates salary with our commissioner is taking the view, especially the chairman, that they in a limited group can complete this agreement". Jones, who was a non-voting member of the compensation committee, was kicked out immediately after he threatened to sue, reports the Times.

Goodell's contract runs through 2018 and some owners don't see the urgency in doing anything before the league meetings later this year, or even before next March, once the group as a whole can discuss and vote on the issue.

The letter mentions a range of possible sanctions, including fines, stripping of draft picks, and suspending Jones.

The six people on the committee - the owners of the Falcons, Kansas City Chiefs, New York Giants, New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers and Houston Texans - have spoken regularly with other owners about the status of the negotiations, and Blank briefed all owners on the contract talks at leaguewide meeting in mid-October.

The criticisms around Goodell focus on his bungling of the league's domestic violence policy and the Bountygate and Deflategate controversies.
