The battle Jerry Jones has waged with the NFL and its compensation committee over an extension for commissioner Roger Goodell has led to hypothesis the league may pressure the proprietor of the Dallas Cowboys to promote his crew.

Jones laughed off the suggestion in an look on 105.three The Fan on Tuesday morning.

“I’ve had not one inkling of communication with the league workplace or any proprietor that might counsel one thing that laughable and ridiculous,” Jones mentioned, in line with Kate Hairopoulos of the Dallas Morning Information.

Jones restated his intention to sue the league and the compensation committee if it strikes ahead with an extension for Goodell. He added his difficulty with it comes right down to timing.

“He has 18 months (left earlier than the contract expires). We have on a regular basis on this planet to increase him. We have to gradual this practice down,” Jones mentioned, per Todd Archer of ESPN.
