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. Now comes this report from Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio suggesting that multiple NFL owners have discussed the possibility of forcing Jones out

NFL Owners May Consider Invoking A Rule To Force Jerry Jones To Sell The Cowboys . Should Jones look to proceed with his lawsuit as threatened, it would create a very tense and hostile dynamic between he and the other owners , which begs the question of what power can they have as a group

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.

“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.

Jerry Jones says he won't sue over Roger Goodell's contract, but fight isn't over .
Jones says his fight isn't about replacing Goodell but rather demanding "accountability."“I want accountability,” Jones told USA TODAY Sports on Tuesday.
