  • Jerry Jones Not Backing Down in Goodell Contract Fight AP

Meanwhile, Falcons owner Arthur Blank, the compensation committee's chairman, doesn't appear to be taking Jones' advice.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has waged a war with the National Football League over the possible extension of Roger Goodell's contract.

"Roger has nearly 18 months [left before his contract expires]", Jones said. 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.

The 75-year-old Jones has owned the Cowboys since 1989 and has overseen three Super Bowl titles.

The warning to Jones, which was issued by the six owners on the NFL compensation committee after the group held a conference call Monday, comes less than two weeks after he threatened to sue the league and the owners on the committee who have been working for months on a new contract for Goodell. The compensation committee has sent Jones a cease-and-desist notice over his threats to sue the league, according to the New York Times. "The negotiations are progressing and we will keep ownership apprised of the negotiations as they move forward".

"I've had not one, not one, inkling of communication from the league office or any owner that would suggest something that laughable and ridiculous", Jones said on 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday morning about the Pro Football Talk report. One being Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension for alleged domestic violence, and the other being the league's handling of the national anthem protests. Which is fitting, given that the lawsuit would arise from Jones' objection to the many millions to be paid to Commissioner Roger Goodell under his next contract. "We do not intend to publicly comment on our discussions". Goodell's contract is set to expire after the 2018 season.
