Jerry Jones attempted to table the contract extension of Roger Goodell for six months. Goodell officially signed the agreement last week, which could be worth up to $200 million over the next five years.
Jones' proposal, on page 10 of the 32-page agenda for this week's league meeting, was submitted on Dec. 1, titled Proposed Resolution 2017 G-7, by the Dallas Cowboys. In it, Jones argued for a six-month "moratorium and any and all actions taken pursuant" to Goodell's new contract, "specifically, that the Commissioner's extension is not finalized during such moratorium."
Jones spent the past few weeks trying to build support to delay or derail Goodell's contract.
"The owners who supported [Jones] are not exactly influencers and arm-twisters," one owner said. "They're just happy that Jerry wanted to talk to them."
