The NFL's compensation committee has denied Jerry Jones' request that the league's owners be allowed a final vote of approval on commissioner Roger Goodell's contract extension, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.

The committee also reiterated Monday that Jones should drop his threat to sue the league over Goodell's deal, saying in a letter obtained by the Journal that the Dallas Cowboys owner's dispute with the commissioner "reflects conduct unbefitting an owner and is damaging to the League."

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, the chairman of the six-person committee, responded to Jones' request for a vote by citing a May resolution in which the 32 owners unanimously gave the committee authority to negotiate Goodell's extension.

In the letter, Blank wrote that Jones was ignoring facts "to satisfy your personal agenda," according to the Journal.
