Jerry Jones sees a prone Roger Goodell, and he’s pouncing.
The influential Cowboys owner was a leader of a 17-owner conference call Thursday discussing whether they could halt a pending contract extension for the commissioner, according to an ESPN report Sunday.
Jones tried holding up the talks last month, according to Sports Business Daily, after Goodell slammed Ezekiel Elliott with a six-game suspension (a war that is now being waged in court). Amid another controversy this month — the national anthem saga has necessitated multiple owners-players meetings, as Goodell won’t mandate the players stand and Jones is threatening Cowboys onto their feet — Jones appears to be relaunching an attempt at dethroning the commissioner.
