  • NFL Discusses Removal Of Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones, Says He's “Damaging The League” — Report

"I'm gonna come after you with everything I have", Jones reportedly told Goodell during an August conference call after being alerted of the league's decision to suspend Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott.

But Van Natta and Wickersham have the alleged details on what Jones said to Goodell after being informed Elliot would be suspended. And Jerry Jones wasn't happy, according to Don Van Natta Jr. and Seth Wickersham in an article that will appear in the December 4 issue of ESPN The Magazine.

It doesn't matter what Jerry Jones says about it publicly.

Jerry Jones is now at the center of a back-and-forth issue with the NFL compensation committee as well as Roger Goodell as he continues to try and sabotage him getting a new contract from the league.

"I was really impressed with how Zeke went about it, that process", Jason Witten said, "I know that he and his team were trying to fight for what they felt was right, and I think he went about it the right way". Goodell handed Elliott a six-game suspension, which is the baseline for a first offender under the league's policy.

The WSJ also added that the owners on the compensation committee have already denied Jones' request for a meeting, which he had hoped would held on November 28. The intensity of feelings on both sides has kept this issue in the spotlight and now a new incident involving Jones is likely to dominate the news for the next few days.

It hasn't been the best day for Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones.

Oh it's bad. The letter accuses Jones of sabotaging negotiations! "This is not the time for the League to undertake massive contractual obligations which are inconsistent with the League's performance".

"Jerry's message to Roger was 'I run this league".

Jones later publicly called it "an overcorrection" by Goodell - a make-up call for all of the times the National Football League blew it with discipline for violence against women.
