Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday in an interview with 105.3 The Fan that there’s still plenty of time for NFL owners to evaluate their options regarding an extension for commissioner Roger Goodell.
“He’s served about 60 percent, roughly, 65 percent of this contract,” Jones said, via ESPN.com. “He has 18 months left on there. We’ve got all the time in the world to evaluate what we’re doing. We’ve got all the time in the world to extend him. We just need to slow this train down and have a lot of time to discuss the issues at hand in the NFL and have a good, fair input from all the owners, which we’re not getting.”
“I speak to a lot of owners, and I know them to be really supportive of the idea of being able to, on their part, see what and guide and give input to the committee, particularly the chairman,” Jones said. “And I have well over half this league that is very interested in not only being a part of what is negotiated but having it come back to them for approval.”
On Monday, Falcons owner Arthur Blank released a statement that the committee was still working toward an extension for Goodell and disputed Jones’ assertion that owners have been misled regarding “critical facts” about the negotiations.
“We looked at that as a potential (move),” Reid said, via Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star. “(But) he’s in a good place. It worked out good for him.”

“I’m not coming up with a scenario right now,” Bowles said, via the New York Post. “We’re going to play the games, and we’re going to try to win each one. Josh will be our quarterback, and then we’ll go from there. … If something happens to Josh, and those two get ready to play, they’ll play.”
