A letter was obtained by the Associated Press that was sent by the NFL to the attorney of Jerry Jones accusing the owner of the Dallas Cowboys of a conduct that is considered detrimental to the best interests of the league over his refusal to concede to an extension of the contract for commissioner Roger Goodell.
The letter has words that accuse Jones of endangering the negotiations; it was on Wednesday sent to David Boies. Boies was hired by John and made a threat to sue the NFL if the contract established by Goodell was approved by the committee in charge of compensation, comprised of six team members. The vote was unanimous among the 32 members in May. The vote was to let the committee make a final decision as regards the deal with Goodell.
The letter which was documented by outside counsel was first announced by The Wall Street Journal and also by The New York Times. The written letter was given by a person to the AP who requested anonymity because it was not their intent to make it public.
Jones denies claims
It is the most recent escalation of a feud that exists between one of its owners that is really powerful. Jones in a statement has denied, saying that his objections are connected to the decision made by Goodell to suspend Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott over cases of domestic violence for six games.
Elliott led to leave the case of his legal fight on Wednesday over the suspension. He has remaining five games left to serve before he will be able to join the Cowboys again for their home game slated to hold on the 24th of December against the Seahawks of Seattle.
