Since the NFL made the decision to levy a six-game suspension on Dallas Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliot prior to the 2017 season, there has been ongoing tension between team owner Jerry Jones and league commissioner Roger Goodell. It has lingered on with Jones attempting legal action to prevent Goodell from securing a sizeable extension. The lack of support from other owners led Jones threatening to sue the members of the compensation committee, which includes owners from the Kansas City Chiefs, Atlanta Falcons, New York Giants, New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Houston Texans. According to Ben Belson of the New York Times, Goodell is set to respond with legal action to get Jones to pay “millions of dollars” for his actions against him and the compensation committee.
