National Football League could punish Jerry Jones for trying to stop Roger Goodell's deal

"He's served about 60 percent, roughly, 65 percent of this contract", Jones said on 105.3 The Fan, per Todd Archer of ESPN.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is said to be seeking a contract extension that would provide him with a $20 million raise and lifetime use of a private jet, sources confirmed to CNBC. Per the Times report, Jones could be subject to fines, loss of draft picks and even a suspension for his attempts to halt the commish's new deal.

"Roger has nearly 18 months [left before the contract expires]", Jones said.

"We've got all the time in the world to extend [Goodell]", Jones said.

Jones is more personally invested in this than some other owners because running back Ezekiel Elliott was suspended for six games by Goodell, despite never even facing charges for his domestic violence allegations.

After the match, he said: "I have not resigned because I haven't spoken to the president yet". We failed at something which also means something on a social level.

The NFL competition committee reportedly sent a cease-and-desist warning to Jones over his intervention in contract talks. "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".

Meanwhile, Falcons owner Arthur Blank, the compensation committee's chairman, doesn't appear to be taking Jones' advice.

According to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, some team owners have discussed the "nuclear option" with Jones - a clause in the league constitution and bylaws that could force Jones to sell the team.

Jones also has been accused of pushing the chief executive of Papa John's, a pizza chain and a league sponsor, to discredit the commissioner and of leaking false information about the details of Goodell's contract negotiations. "I've had not one inkling of communication with the league office or any owner that would suggest something that laughable and ridiculous".
