Jerry Jones won't stop fighting owners in Roger Goodell talks

Share

He has inserted himself into discussions on Goodell's extension, threatened to sue the league and owners on the compensation committee, and there are some that believe he pushed Papa John's CEO John Schnatter to come after the NFL.

The always outspoken Cowboys owner laughed off the possibility of NFL owners running him out of the league over his continued opposition to an extension for commissioner Roger Goodell. Goodell has 18 months left on his current term and a lot to prove in the NFL's troubled 2017 landscape.

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.

The range of punishments, according to the Times, includes fines, docking draft picks and even suspending Jones, who has owned the Cowboys since 1989. "I disagree", Jones said last week on a radio appearance.

Jerry Jones has refuted the New York Times report that he has been issued a cease-and-desist warning from the six NFL owners on the compensation committee in response to Jones reportedly threatening to sue the league and the owners on the committee. "We do not intend to publicly comment on our discussions".

Jones' battle with the league has heightened in recent weeks with his frustration with Goodell.

The owners voted unanimously in May to give the compensation committee the authority to negotiate Goodell's new deal. "We need to slow this train down".
