Jerry Jones' lawyer: Owners being misled on Roger Goodell negotiations

Jerry Jones' lawyer: Owners being misled on Roger Goodell negotiations”

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is going all in to block National Football League owners from giving Commissioner Roger Goodell a new contract.

Blank's reasoning for the termination was Jones' intention to sue the league and members of the committee, expressed during a November 2 conference call.

The war between Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, and other owners throughout the league is only just beginning. However, according to two unidentified ownership sources, the committee is not now unanimous on Goodell's contract and Jones is alleging Blank backed off his word of "unanimity" as Goodell's contract is in it's final stages.

In the letter, Jones reportedly said he discovered "concerning issues", including that facts might have been misrepresented and that the committee was misled by Blank because he originally said that unanimous approval would be required before proceeding on the contract.

"Commissioner Goodell's contract extension is a substantial commitment by the Owners, as more than $200 million is at stake, on top of the $200 million already paid to him", the letter reads, according to ESPN.

On Wednesday, the New York Times reported that Jones had hired powerful lawyer David Boies and threatened to sue the league and some of its team owners in order to get a vote in whether or not to extend Goodell's contract past 2018.

"The owners voted unanimously to authorize the compensation committee to enter into negotiations and offer the commissioner an extension of his contract through 2024", Lockhart said according to ESPN.

Jones claims that Blank has since backtracked on the promise of a unanimous decision by the committee.
