National Football League responds to Jerry Jones's request to hold special owners meeting

NFL Discusses Removal Of Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones, Says He's “Damaging The League” — Report

Van Natta and Wickersham spoke with a source who said Jones came away from that call believing that there would be no suspension.

When contacted later by CBS 11, Jones apologized for his comment.

In the letter sent on Wednesday, the owners on the committee said that they were unhappy with Jones because he had circulated a three-month-old document with details of requests from Goodell that Jones "personally knows to be an outdated, historical artifact of no relevance whatsoever in the context of these lengthy negotiations".

Jones looks directly into the camera and says, "Jennifer, congratulations on the wedding".

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones momentarily stepped away from his fight against a proposed contract extension for National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell, in order to apologize for a racially insensitive comment made four years ago. "Now, you know he's with a black girl tonight, don't you?"

Earlier this month, Jones threatened to sue his fellow owners and the league to stop progress on Goodell's contract extension, which would be for five more years and pay him more than the $42 million annual salary he now receives.

"I$3 won't cast judgment on one moment when a joke went south to capture who this man represents in a lifetime commitment of love and compassion to all ethnicities", Sanders told The Blast.

The fan who handed over the video of Jones reportedly shared it recently among his group of friends in response to the current climate in the NFL. There have been reports of consideration by some owners of possibly forcing Jones to sell the Cowboys, a franchise with an estimated value of more than $4 billion.

"It would be madness to think that everything I'm doing isn't in the best short and long-term interest of the NFL", Jones said.

Instead, when Goodell called days later to tell Jones, ESPN says Jones paused then responded, referencing Patriots owner Robert Kraft and the deflategate scandal.

Jones did not talk about it directly in a radio interview on Friday.
