And in a curious move, the NFL has sent Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones, a letter warning him of committing “Conduct Detrimental to the League’s Best Interest,” due to his objection to a contract extension for Commissioner Roger Goodell. Jones had accused the league of misinforming its owner of details in Goodell’s extension. The letter accuses Jones of attempting to sabotage negotiations.
