Video by NFL . Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was in Atlanta with his team on Sunday. Now comes this report from Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio suggesting that multiple NFL owners have discussed the possibility of forcing Jones out from his current position as Cowboys owner .
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is now weighing in on reports that fellow NFL owners are seeking to discipline him for blocking a contract extension for Commissioner Roger Goodell. One report even suggested a "nuclear option" in which Jones could be forced to sell the franchise because of
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was in Atlanta with his team on Sunday. Joining him at the new stadium in Atlanta was Falcons owner Arthur Blank.
The two obviously have seen drama overtake their relationship, especially after Jones himself went with a potential nuclear option. That included Jones hiring world-renowned lawyer David Boies to help block an extension for NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (more on that here).
Now comes this report from Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio suggesting that multiple NFL owners have discussed the possibility of forcing Jones out from his current position as Cowboys owner.
Group of NFL Owners Warns Jerry Jones and Threatens Penalties
Fines, taking draft picks and a suspension are possible penalties for Jones, the Cowboys’ owner, who has escalated a fight over Roger Goodell’s contract.The warning to Jones, which was issued by the six owners on the NFL compensation committee after the group held a conference call Monday, comes less than two weeks after he threatened to sue the league and the owners on the committee who have been working for months on a new contract for Goodell.
CIRCA 1991 - Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones in this portrait on the field circa 1991 before an NFL football game. Florio reported that owners opposed to Jones could potentially trigger a clause in the league 's constitution and bylaws that could force an owner to sell his team if it is
NFL owners reportedly have an ace in the hole to deal with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones , and it could result in him being forced to sell his franchise. In fact, there are actual thoughts currently underway about removing Jones from the league . PFT reported the following on the doomsday
“They could, in theory, attempt to trigger forfeiture of the Dallas franchise,” Florio reported. “A league source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that multiple owners already have been discussing the possibility, which flows from Article VIII of the NFL’s Constitution & Bylaws.”
The action would be under the guise of Goodell himself concluding that Jones “has been or is guilty of conduct detrimental to the welfare of the League or professional football.” Under the current CBA, this is well within Goodell’s power.
It’s not yet known just how viable this option might be. But at the very least, it’s something owners themselves are discussing. That qualifies as some rather huge news around the NFL.
