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

Six team owners have sent Jones a cease-and-desist letter warning of potential punishments for blocking the contract extension, The New York Times reported Monday, citing sources.

Jones, who is upset about the six-game ban handed to his star running back Ezekiel Elliott by Roger Goodell, is leading the charge against the National Football League commissioner getting a new contract. Jones had been a nonvoting member of the committee until he was thrown out after threatening to sue the members.

"He has 18 months..." Jones has stood behind Elliott through the entire legal process, even though the running back eventually lost in court - the CBA does give Goodell the power he's using - and is now serving that suspension.

Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones on his weekly radio appearance today essentially telling The NFL and the other owners he's not backing down.

Appearing on 105.3 The Fan (h/t Roy White III of Shan and RJ), Jones said, "I've had not one inkling of communication with the league office or any owner that would suggest something that laughable and ridiculous".

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is not anxious about backlash over his attempts to slow down Roger Goodell's new deal. One owner told Sports Illustrated's Peter King that he believes Jones wants to "overthrow" Goodell.

In addition to the cease-and-desist warning, some owners are reportedly discussing a nuclear option - the long-shot possibility of making Jones forfeit his ownership in the Cowboys.

The league could take a range of steps, including fines, docking draft picks and even suspending Jones, according to several people with knowledge of the situation.

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.
