Adam Silver contacted by National Football League owner about replacing Roger Goodell

Jerry Jones Is Scolded for 'Antics' in Letter From Fellow Owners

Jerry Jones sends letter seeking special owners' meeting to address Roger Goodell's contract

The letter requests a special meeting of the owners to address the extension of Commissioner Roger Goodell's contract.

It was dated Wednesday, November 15.Your November letter is yet another effort by your client to disregard and deliberately interfere with the May 2017 Resolution, unanimously adopted by the owners (including your client), which expressly approved a contract extension with Commissioner Goodell and further authorized the Compensation Committee to finalize the terms of that extension.

The letter accuses Jones of sabotaging the negotiations in the latest round of the escalating feud between Jones and Goodell.

Max Scherzer repeats as NL Cy Young victor
The Indians won an AL-best 102 games this season and Kluber's performance - especially down the stretch - was a big part of that. It helped Kluber's cause that his Indians teammates scored 14 runs (13 earned) off Sale in two August appearances.

The biggest bombshell came from the exchange that reportedly occurred when Goodell originally informed Jones that the National Football League would be handing down a six-game suspension on Elliott (after originally assuring Jones there would be no suspension).

With that context, there is no legitimate basis for Mr. Jones to circulate to the full ownership a three-month-old document from a consultant to the Committee - a document that Mr. Jones personally knows to be an outdated, historical artifact of no relevance whatsoever in the context of these lengthy negotiations.

Jones is seeking to at least delay completion of the contract, with Goodell's current deal in effect until 2019. In a counterproposal, Goodell's lawyer reportedly asked for $49.05 million per year.

Hariri sought mediation between Iran, S. Arabia, Velayati says
The development came as French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian arrived in Riyadh where he met Prince Mohammed late Wednesday. Lebanon has been buffeted for decades by conflicts between bigger players in the region such as Iran and Syria.

Jones is insisting the percolating feud about Elliott isn't part of his threat to sue the NFL. While the league's letter reportedly doesn't make that suggestion outright, some owners have been discussing the potential there, according to the Journal.

The Star-Telegram has also confirmed that an angry Jones threatened Goodell's job initially.

Jones has garnered criticism recently after announcing players on the Cowboys would be benched if they refused to stand for the National Anthem, saying "We can not in the NFL, in any way, give the implication that we are in any way disrespecting the flag". He has owned the Cowboys since 1989.
