According to the New York Times, the Dallas Cowboys owner has hired lawyer David Boies (who finds himself involved in the Harvey Weinstein scandal) and has threatened to sue the league and some team owners over the negotiations over Goodell's contract extension. Per the New York Times, it was a call that ended up backfiring on Jones as the owners not only failed to see his perspective but made a decision to give Jones even less power than before.

"I'd say that, on the issue of extending the Commissioner's contract that in the spring meeting in Chicago, the owners voted unanimously to authorize the Compensation Committee to enter in to negotiations and offer the Commissioner an extension of his contract through 2024", National Football League spokesman Joe Lockhart said during a Thursday afternoon media briefing.

The NFL suspended Elliott six games in August over an alleged domestic violence incident, after Jones was adamant there was no evidence against him.

According to ESPN, Goodell is furious that his next contract might be performance-based.

Meanwhile, a league executive said Jones' injecting himself into the process, despite not being a member of the owners' compensation committee, has increased Goodell's determination to sign a new long-term deal.

However, OTL's sources said that not only does Jones want Goodell out, but he also has his own candidate in mind to replace him. Jones previously said he believed players should stand for the anthem.

"Jones has not identified the grounds of such a lawsuit, but one source said Jones is exploring whether a requirement that two-thirds of owners must approve a commissioner's contract could be increased to three-fourths of owners". Jones is considered one of the most powerful and influential owners in the league.

Schefter and Mortensen had also reported in October that Jones was the leading voice of a group of owners who wanted to delay Goodell's contract extension.
