Jerry Jones sends letter seeking special owners' meeting to address Roger Goodell's contract

The owners voted 32-0 in May to authorize the Compensation Committee to negotiate to conclusion a new five-year extension with Goodell.

The NFL has no shortage of issues plaguing it publicly and internally, from the national anthem protests to the ongoing revelations about brain damage among players. but if this story is any indication, the league is about to have a real big Jerry Jones problem on their hands.

The NFL will not attempt to force Jerry Jones to sell the Dallas Cowboys over his efforts to oppose the owners' pending contract extension with Commissioner Roger Goodell, according to the owner of one franchise and several others familiar with the situation. In a letter by a Cowboys attorney, Jones also accused Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, chairman of the compensation committee, of misleading owners about the negotiations. One would have to presume these details revolve around an ESPN report that Goodell wanted $49.9 million per year and lifetime use of a private jet. But then Goodell suspended Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott for six games - Elliott dropped his appeal on Wednesday night, coincidentally, and will serve out the suspension.

Hill and Davison noted that because Goodell is set to maintain his position for 18 months, Jones doesn't think there is a need to rush the extension.

Regardless, the letter makes it clear other owners are disturbed with Jones' recent actions.

"I don't know where this is coming from about stripping him of his franchise", the owner said, on the condition of anonymity because of the threat of litigation by Jones. The other owners just sent a letter of censure to Jones's lawyer David Boies, accusing Jones of "conduct detrimental to the league" and stating that they have had enough of his damaging "antics" that include threatened lawsuits if he doesn't get his way, the New York Times reported Wednesday night.

Jones was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August.
