Jones on Goodell contract talks: 'Slow this train down'

NFL Could Punish Jerry Jones for Trying to Stop Commissioner's Deal

However, with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones doing his best to single-handedly wreck Goodell's extension as part of Jones' ongoing feud with the commissioner, things have gotten ugly in the prolonged discussions.

The ripples have extended as far out as the owners considering enacting a clause in the league's constitution that could see Jones forfeit his ownership of the Cowboys, according to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio.

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. "He has 18 months left on there". Jones had been a nonvoting member of the committee until he was thrown out after threatening to sue the members.

The Compensation Committee now consists of Falcons owner Arthur Blank, Chiefs owner Clark Hunt, Giants co-owner John Mara, Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Steelers owner Art Rooney II, and Texans owner Bob McNair. "The negotiations are progressing and we will keep ownership apprised of the negotiations as they move forward".

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've got all the time in the world to extend him. Two weeks ago, John Schnatter, the Papa John's chief executive, claimed that player protests during the national anthem had hurt his company's sales. Then there's the conclusion of the Ezekiel Elliott case, of course.

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.

In addition to the cease-and-desist warning, some owners are reportedly discussing a nuclear option - the long-shot possibility of making Jones forfeit his ownership in the Cowboys.
