Report: NFL owners issue warning to Jerry Jones after threat to sue league

It seems some owners across the NFL aren't too pleased with Jerry Jones' attempts to block a contract extension for commissioner Roger Goodell.

A group of six anonymous owners on the NFL compensation committee made a move to block interference from Jones in Goodell's contract talks Monday by issuing a cease-and-desist warning to the Dallas Cowboys owner, according to Ken Belson of The New York Times.

Recently confirming the possibility of taking legal action against the league, Jones suggested that specifics of any Goodell extension should be reviewed by all owners rather than select members of a committee. If Jones does not comply with the warning, he could reportedly face a number of punishments from the league, including fines, suspensions, and having draft picks confiscated.

Despite Jones' efforts, all indications from compensation committee chairman and Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank are that Goodell's extension is still very much in the works.

"The committee is continuing its work towards finalizing a contract extension with the commissioner," Blank said Monday. "The negotiations are progressing and we will keep ownership apprised of the negotiations as they move forward. We do not intend to publicly comment on our discussions."

Jones has adamantly stated that his actions are not as a result of Goodell's decision to suspend Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott, instead saying his reason is to make the contract talks more transparent, according to Belson.

If any penalties were to be imposed on Jones, it would be Goodell himself that would be required to administer the punishment.
