When Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said last week that he won’t sue over the extension to Commissioner Roger Goodell’s contract, Jones seemed to hint at a quid pro quo. “I told the [Compensation] Committee that I was standing down on legal action because they wanted to get input from all of the owners,” Jones told Jarrett Bell of USA Today. During a Tuesday media briefing, NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said that no promise was made to submit the Goodell contract to all owners for input and/or approval in order to avoid a threat of litigation from Jones.
