The NFL's Compensation Committee has given Jerry Jones a cease-and-desist warning in response to the Dallas Cowboys owner's threat to sue the league over contract extension talks with commissioner Roger Goodell, according to The New York Times.
The committee issued the warning to Jones after holding a conference call Monday to discuss Goodell's potential extension, according to the Times.
Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank released a statement Monday, saying that the committee is still working toward an extension for Goodell and disputing Jones' assertion that owners have been misled regarding "critical facts" about the negotiations."The Committee is continuing its work towards finalizing a contract extension with the Commissioner, consistent with the mandate provided in the unanimous May 2017 Resolution," Blank said in his statement. "Regardless of what may have been reported, the Committee is working within the financial parameters outlined to the ownership at the May meeting. The negotiations are progressing and we will keep ownership apprised of the negotiations as they move forward. We do not intend to publicly comment on our discussions."
Blank, the chairman of the six-member committee, terminated Jones as a non-voting, ad-hoc seventh member Saturday because of Jones' threat to sue the league.
In a letter sent last week to owners on the committee, Jones claimed he "has discovered a number of very concerning issues" while engaged as a committee member, including that "the Ownership (sic) and Jerry Jones now understand that they have been unquestionably misled" by Blank and that "critical facts" have been misrepresented regarding Goodell's contract.
ESPN reported Sunday that Goodell's last written counterproposal, sent to the committee around Aug. 1, was seeking approximately $49.5 million in annual salary and also included the lifetime use of a private jet and lifetime health insurance for his family.
Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones, Jerry Jones' son, said during a radio interview Monday that he and his father "want what's in the best interest of the league."
"We're not against Roger, we just don't know if this is the time to be talking about a http://www.officialauthenticchiefsstore.com/Nike-Cameron-Erving-Jersey.html
major contract extension when the league certainly has incredible challenges in terms of where we are with the league," Stephen Jones said during an interview with 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. "Whether that's our ratings, whether that's our concern with our sponsors, I think we need to be focusing on our business and not necessarily on contract extensions.
"It's not that we're against Roger, I think Jerry has been vocal about it, that's certainly not easy to do when you have certain momentums that are going one way and you take a contrarian stance ... In his mind what we take as an organization, we just don't think it's in the best interest of the NFL right now to move forward."LAS VEGAS -- The Oakland Raiders' impending move to Las Vegas by 2020 took another step closer to reality with Monday's groundbreaking ceremony, an event attended by close to 1,000 guests, officials and media.
The event had the glitz of a headliner on the Strip, with Wayne Newton and Carlos Santana in the front row and George Lopez the emcee. It had the power of the NFL in owners Robert Kraft, Stan Kroenke, Dean Spanos and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell -- and the awe of Raiders royalty Howie Long, Fred Biletnikoff, Jim Plunkett, Tom Flores and Cliff Branch.
It also featured a touching tribute to the 58 victims of the Oct. 1 shooting with streams of light to the sky and music by Judith Hill and a choir. "Only in Vegas," Goodell said, "can you turn a groundbreaking ceremony into a show."
Said Raiders owner Mark Davis: "I hope my dad would be proud."The Raiders' relocation to Las Vegas was a plan years in the making -- Davis' late father tried for years to get a new stadium in Oakland and Los Angeles, where the franchise played from 1982 through 1994, before moving back to Oakland -- that began again in earnest when NFL owners shot down their plans to move to Los Angeles in January 2016.
Shortly after, casino mogul Sheldon Adelson announced his interest in helping build a domed stadium near the UNLV campus that could be shared by a professional team and the school.
Lobbying began, and the Nevada Legislature approved a tax increase to contribute $750 million to the project. Adelson later withdrew his $650 million pledge from the project, and the Raiders chose a different site for the stadium. A loan from http://www.officialavalancheauthentic.com/Erik_Johnson_Jersey
Bank of America took Adelson's place. UNLV and the Raiders will still share the stadium, but the joint-use agreement is pending. Contractors have a tight deadline, as they plan to complete the stadium in time for the 2020 season.
Raiders president Marc Badain called the $1.9 billion, 65,000-seat dome with a grass field that will be rolled in and out of the stadium a "massive" project.going to be the same as it's been," Davis said. "We've

Still, Davis recognized the balancing act he has to perform in Oakland while building the brand in Las Vegas. The Raiders have a lease to play at the Oakland Coliseum in 2018 and are open to playing there again in 2019 before moving to Southern Nevada in 2020.
"I think it's going to be the same as it's been," Davis Denard Span Womens Jersey
said. "We've concentrated on the football and trying to keep all these things separated. And I think we've done a really good job of keeping that on the football side of the building. My focus is on giving them everything we need to win."
Davis referenced the multi-million dollar training facility the Raiders added to their Alameda complex two years ago.
"It's all about winning, and providing them with everything they need to win," Davis said. "We're the Oakland Raiders right now and we're going to try to bring a championship up there. But in 2020, we're going to be the Las Vegas Raiders, and we're proud of that. But the fans are the most important thing to us as well, and they've been very understanding. There's a lot of people that may have their feelings hurt; they may feel hurt, right now."
Davis said he has spoken with Bay Area fans and tried to explain why the move was necessary, and while they may understand, they don't necessarily agree.
