NFL Owners Have Discussed How To Kick Out Jerry Jones

NFL Owners Have Discussed How To Kick Out Jerry Jones”

On his Tuesday radio show, Jones said "well over half" of the owners agreed with his stance of conducting a final vote after the compensation committee finishes the negotiating with Goodell.

That was confirmed by two others with knowledge of the league's inner workings.

It is safe to say that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was not happy upon initially learning of running back Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension. Now, per the Journal, the NFL has sent a letter to Jones's attorney calling his behavior "detrimental to the league's best interests". Maske clarified the sources he cited "stopped short of mentioning forcing Jones to sell".

In the letter, the NFL accused Jones of "conduct detrimental to the league's best interests" for his aggressive behavior towards Roger Goodell, his attempt to block Goodell's contract extension from being worked out and his threatening NFL owners with a lawsuit if they proceeded down the extension path.

The letter accuses Jones of sabotaging the negotiations in the latest round of the escalating feud between Jones and Goodell. The owner said "there's a chance" Goodell's extension could be completed before or at that meeting.

"With due respect, we urge Mr. Jones to drop his misguided litigation threats and media campaign to undermine the Committee's mandate", said the letter sent from National Football League attorney Brad Karp to Boies, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Post. Seconds passed. Goodell's decision was an unconscionable violation of trust, Jones later told associates, because he believed that the commissioner had assured him this past spring that there would be no suspension.

The fact that an owner thought to reach out to Silver regarding the position also signals that there isn't any clear choice within the NFL to take over Goodell's role, even if some owners would prefer a change in league leadership.
