The always outspoken Cowboys owner laughed off the possibility of NFL owners running him out of the league over his continued opposition to an extension for commissioner Roger Goodell.

The range of punishments, according to the Times, includes fines, docking draft picks and even suspending Jones, who has owned the Cowboys since 1989. The New York Times reported Monday that the committee sent Jones a cease-and-desist warning after holding a conference call earlier in the day to discuss Goodell's potential extension. Which is fitting, given that the lawsuit would arise from Jones' objection to the many millions to be paid to Commissioner Roger Goodell under his next contract.

Jones also responded to the report that he may be ousted as owner of the Dallas Cowboys by a so-called "nuclear option" from his fellow owners.

"I've had not one inkling of communication with the league office or any owner that would suggest something that laughable and ridiculous", he said.

On Tuesday, he implied that part of his issue is that Goodell isn't close enough to the end of his current deal.

However, they are going to continue to let backup QB Case Keenum run the offense in Week 10 against Washington. The second one came on the first play of the fourth quarter and was returned 31 yards to the Minnesota 2.

The Compensation Committee now consists of Falcons owner Arthur Blank, Chiefs owner Clark Hunt, Giants co-owner John Mara, Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Steelers owner Art Rooney II, and Texans owner Bob McNair. "We do not intend to publicly comment on our discussions".

"Roger has nearly 18 months [left before his contract expires]", Jones said. We've got all the time in the world to extend him.

As for Goodell's extension.

Before all this, reports would surface that National Football League owners were planning to "punish" Jones if he didn't step back. "We need to slow this train down", Jones would say during his weekly radio appearance.
