Jerry Jones won't stop fighting owners in Roger Goodell talks

According to the New York Times, the owners who make-up the NFL's Compensation Committee, have sent Jerry Jones a cease-and-desist letter telling him to stop his efforts to block Commissioner Roger Goodell's contract extension.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported over the weekend that some team owners have discussed the possibility of taking the "nuclear option" with Jones, which would be forcing the 75-year-old to give up ownership of the Cowboys.

"I've had discussions with the committee chairman, but received no 'notices", Jones said Tuesday morning on radio station KRLD in Dallas.

Jones' battle with the league has heightened in recent weeks with his frustration with Goodell. Jones is at odds with commissioner Roger Goodell, the man behind Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension, and Jones is reportedly trying to keep Goodell's contract extension from going through.

Moscow stated that it never promised that the pro-Iranian forces in Syria would retreat, Russia's RIA news agency reported Tuesday.

Jones' maneuvers have escalated one of the worst fissures in decades in the normally clubby ownership group.

"Roger [Goodell] has nearly 18 months left [on his contract]", Jones explained. Jones says there's plenty of time to talk about a new contract, but he'd rather focus on other bigger issues in the league first.

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. We've got all the time in the world to extend him. "We just need to slow this train down and discuss the issues at hand in the National Football League".

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 do not intend to publicly comment on our discussions".
