The Cowboys owner appeared on 105.3 The Fan - where he shot down the suggestion he could be forced out. and said he hasn't heard a peep about any such plan from the league or any other owner.

The league could take a range of steps, including fines, docking draft picks and even suspending Jones, according to several people with knowledge of the situation.

Jones claimed Tuesday he just wants the compensation committee to bring any negotiations with Goodell to the rest of the owners for approval.

Other owners, according to Florio, are upset with Jones because they believe he encouraged Papa John's CEO John Schnatter to blame the National Football League for failing pizza sales. Those owners and Jones have since communicated through lawyers.

On Saturday, committee chairman Arthur Blank of the Atlanta Falcons removed Jones as an ad-hoc, non-voting member of the committee due to his threat to sue. "The negotiations are progressing and we will keep ownership apprised of the negotiations as they move forward". We've got all the time in the world to extend him.

Jones is mad at Goodell for two main reasons.

The Times report meshes with what CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported on Sunday: Some owners are starting to turn on Jones because, according to sources, "his attacks on commissioner Roger Goodell are being seen by his peers as a direct reaction to his anger of Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension and are diminishing his respect and influence among other owners".

Jones has threatened legal action to stop the league from giving Goodell a contract extension. Goodell's contract is set to expire after the 2018 season. If a team switches hands, most owners choose to sell by choice.
