NFL Owners Have Reportedly Sent Jerry Jones A Cease-And-Desist Warning

The always outspoken Cowboys owner laughed off the possibility of NFL owners running him out of the league over his continued opposition to an extension for commissioner Roger Goodell. He even threatened to sue the league if the NFL's six-person compensation committee - which includes Giants co-owner John Mara - didn't bring Goodell's new contract to a vote of all 32 owners.

Jones claimed Tuesday he just wants the compensation committee to bring any negotiations with Goodell to the rest of the owners for approval.

Jones' battle with the league has heightened in recent weeks with his frustration with Goodell.

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. Goodell reportedly has asked for a salary of $49.5 million a year, the use of a private jet for life and lifetime health insurance for his family. "The negotiations are progressing and we will keep ownership apprised of the negotiations as they move forward".

"We've got all the time in the world to extend him", Jones said about Goodell, who is under contract until March 2019, "and we need to slow this train down".

Before all this, reports would surface that National Football League owners were planning to "punish" Jones if he didn't step back. We've got all the time in the world to evaluate what we're doing. "We do not intend to publicly comment on our discussions". "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".

Jones and Blank avoided each other after the Falcons defeated the Cowboys in Atlanta on Sunday.
