Jerry Jones is hurting the league

  • Jerry Jones’ feud with the NFl may result in harsh penalties

Other NFL owners sent Jerry Jones a letter calling his actions "detrimental to the league's best interests".

The New York Times and Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that a group of team owners sent a letter to Jones' attorney, David Boies, expressing displeasure over Jones' interference in contract talks between Goodell and the league's Compensation Committee.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones shot down a report Tuesday that suggested National Football League owners could band together in an effort to force his forfeiture of the Cowboys franchise.

Jones has denied that his objections to the extension are tied to Goodell's decision to suspend Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott for six games over alleged domestic violence.

The letter, of which CNNMoney obtained a copy, said Jones' "antics, whatever their motivation, are damaging the league and reflect conduct detrimental to the league's best interests". While all 32 owners voted for an extension, it's now up to the competition committee to decide the compensation for Goodell.

This doesn't mean that they don't want to execute a new contract with Goodell. Pro Football Talk reported Sunday that owners have discussed the idea of expelling Jones from the league.

Jones' lawyer didn't immediately respond to a request for comment late Wednesday.

"There is no legitimate basis for Mr. Jones to circulate to the full ownership a three-month-old document from a consultant to the Committee - a document that Mr. Jones personally knows to be an outdated, historical artifact of no relevance whatsoever in the context of these lengthy negotiations."

Those wide-ranging options available for discipline include fines and suspensions for offending owners, and they do allow for the extreme measure of forcing an owner to sell a franchise.

On Saturday, committee chairman Arthur Blank of the Atlanta Falcons removed Jones as an ad-hoc, non-voting member of the committee due to his threat to sue. Jones contends that another vote of the owners is needed.

"I think we have enough messes as it stands now", the owner said.
