A lawsuit over Goodell's contract could be very costly for Jerry Jones

A lawsuit over Goodell's contract could be very costly for Jerry Jones

Coming into the season, Roger Goodell's impending contract extension talks were likely well down the list of issues National Football League owners would have expected to become extremely hard.

"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, and that's about where that is", the Cowboys owner said Tuesday on his weekly radio show on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. 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.

Jones blew off the threats from his fellow owners. Goodell has 18 months left on his current term and a lot to prove in the NFL's troubled 2017 landscape.

"The committee is continuing its work towards finalizing a contract extension with the commissioner", the compensation committee chairman, Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, said in a statement Monday.

The suites have almost four square metres of personal space and are arranged in a 1-1-1 configuration at the front of the 777s. In the other suites, binoculars are available for customers who want to explore the sky outside their windows.

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.

Elliott was originally suspended by the NFL on August 11 for violating the league's personal conduct policy over domestic violence allegations dating back to 2016.

As for Goodell's extension. We've got all the time in the world to extend him.

Jones has denied that he is seeking revenge for Goodell's decision to suspend Elliott for six games for violating the league's personal conduct policy. "We just need to slow this train down and have a lot of time to discuss the issues at hand in the National Football League and have a good, fair input from all the owners, which we're not getting".
