Jerry Jones will not sue National Football League over Roger Goodell's contract extension

Jerry Jones done with NFL lawsuit idea over Roger Goodell's contract

Jerry Jones, the Dallas Cowboys' owner, has ended his threat to sue the N.F.L. and the six owners on the league's compensation committee who are negotiating a contract extension for Commissioner Roger Goodell, ending one of the league's most contentious internal standoffs in recent years.

His decision comes 24 hours after the compensation committee denied Jones' request that all National Football League team owners be included in a final vote for the commissioner's contract.

After acknowledging "I know you are exhausted of hearing from me", Jones said that he believes the commissioner's performance "cannot be rewarded at this time".

Jones cited declines in television ratings for National Football League games, lower ticket sales and attendance, discontent among fans, and high-profile litigation over player suspensions, among other problems related to Goodell's leadership.

Bell confirmed that news after speaking with an owner not on the compensation committee who said the deal should be completed "by early next week".

Jerry Jones Won't Sue The NFL, Still Won't Shut Up About Roger Goodell's Contract

Last May, Jones and his fellow owners voted unanimously to authorize a compensation committee to handle Goodell's next contract. In the letter, the committee said his actions "reflects conduct unbefitting an owner and is damaging to the League".

The other owners, upset over Jones' actions, have looked at ways to sanction him.

Jones on Tuesday wrote that he looks forward to discussing the league's issues during a meeting scheduled for December 13.

According to the report, Jones wrote committee chairman Arthur Blank, saying "we can't possibly have authorized the terms of Commissioner's contract extension yet, since we still have no idea what those proposed terms will be". The contents of Jones's letter haven't been previously reported.
