Jerry Jones: Objection To Goodell Deal Not About Elliott Ban

Jones would later acknowledge that he didn't speak to Blank, adding that it wasn't unprecedented for owners avoid pregame conversations.

ESPN, citing sources familiar with the negotiations, reported Goodell also is looking for lifetime health insurance for his family.

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank has released an official statement regarding the potentially controversial contract extension talks for NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

In the ongoing battle over Commissioner Roger Goodell's contract, Stephen Jones is reacting to the owners' nuclear option basically the same way the owners are reacting to Jerry Jones' nuclear option.

Jones has threatened to sue the National Football League over Goodell's contract, sending a letter to fellow owners last week saying they had been misled in the negotiations over the commissioners contract.

The Cowboys owner, who worked his way onto the six-owner compensation committee as an unofficial member, had his non-voting membership revoked last week, the New York Times reported.

Iran adds missile to annual anti-US pageant
Iran's commemorations took place under tight security managed by Iranian police and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. The U.S. cut its diplomatic relations with Iran after the embassy takeover and has had no diplomatic relations since.

Blank, according to a report Sunday by Sports Illustrated writer Peter King, was "shocked" and "disappointed" by Jones' threat to sue the league, telling the Cowboys owner, "We may have differences, but this is not the way we resolve them".

"Certainly, we have things we need to discuss that weren't on the table last spring", Jones said.

But Jones claims the committee is not now unanimous. The league and Goodell have been working on a five-year deal to kick in when his current deal expires in 2019. "These changing conditions must be weighed relative to the timing of the Commissioner's contract extension".

Jones's issue with Goodell ostensibly began when the Commissioner suspended Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott for six games back in August after the former Ohio State star was accused of domestic violence by his former girlfriend, Tiffany Thompson.

"I really fervently disagree that we shouldn't have him on the playing field", Jones said.

Jones said his relationship with Goodell, and issues related to his compensation, are deeper than his recent concern over the league's handling of Elliott's case.
