NFL Owners Discussed Jerry Jones Forfeiting Cowboys
It appears that NFL owners are taking a stand in regards to Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
Jones, who has been embroiled in the Ezekiel Elliott suspension and has been on a mission to hold us contract talks with commissioner Roger Goodell, is on the receiving end of the ire of some owners.
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk cited a league source reported that “multiple owners already have been discussing the possibility, which flows from Article VIII of the NFL’s Constitution and Bylaws” and the targeting of Jones “comes from the belief among owners that Jones instigated Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter to disparage the NFL, blaming league leadership for ratings declines and, in turn, a reduction in Papa John’s revenues.”
Jones has made headlines for his stance towards players that choose to kneel during the national anthem among other things.
