  • NFL Jones conduct detrimental to league

The report said other owners side with Jones and have questioned league executives and its leadership.

Later on Friday, video surfaced of Jones from a few years ago in which he makes a racially insensitive comment.

"I'm gonna come after you with everything I have", Jones said.

A man bumped into Jones and asked him for a congratulatory message to his wife-to-be, until Jones responded, "Jennifer, congratulations on the wedding".

Jones and the Cowboys drafted Elliott with the fourth overall pick in the 2016 draft.

In his letter from Thursday, Jones offered his most scathing remarks of Goodell yet, writing that the National Football League "has undergone unprecedented upheaval in the last two years, including a significant decline in television ratings, increased advertiser discontent, high-profile litigation concerning player suspensions, and decreasing ticket sales", which have all come under Goodell's watch.

The camera then pans to a black man, who ducks away from the shot, and back to Jones, who is laughing.

Goodell is in the process of negotiating a contract extension-his current deal for his role as commissioner expires in 2019-but Jones has been trying to prevent it from happening with Elliot's suspension seemingly being the main reason.

Citing the fact that they have an upcoming, already scheduled meeting on December 13th which they say will provide them with "ample opportunity" to discuss Goodell's contract. "If you think Bob Kraft came after you hard [after the deflate-gate decision], Bob Kraft is a [expletive] compared to what I'm going to do". Jones is one of the NFL's most vocal front office presences, having owned the flagship Dallas Cowboys since 1989.

Jones was referencing the "deflategate" investigation that led to the four-game suspension of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady last season. Jones has sought to block a contract extension for Goodell and has threatened legal action if the extension is finalized. Goodell handed Elliott a six-game suspension, which is the baseline for a first offender under the league's policy.
