Jones has acknowledged being at odds with the compensation committee chairman, Atlanta owner Arthur Blank, over the Goodell talks. They didn’t speak on the field before the Falcons’ 27-7 victory over the Cowboys on Sunday.

Kenneth Acker Authentic Jersey Blank issued a statement Monday saying the committee planned to proceed with finalizing the Goodell deal and would keep other owners updated.

Jones claimed Tuesday on his radio show that well over half the owners agree with him in wanting a final vote after the committee is finished negotiating the deal.

With due respect, we urge Mr. Jones to drop his misguided litigation threats and media campaign to undermine the committee’s mandate, the letter said. And we urge Mr. Jones to support the committee’s deliberations, not attempt to sabotage them.

Reid made noise Wednesday when he and Dolphins safety Michael Thomas withdrew from the Players Coalition because they felt Jenkins and Boldin had usurped the group’s motives. Push came to shove for Reid, he revealed Thursday, when Jenkins asked him if he would stop protesting once the two sides agreed to the multi-million dollar plan.

He had a conversation with the NFL, we agreed that multiple people would be in all conversations with the NFL, it wouldn’t just be him solely, so he didn’t stand by his word on that. At no point did we ever communicate that an agreement with the NFL would end the protests, so for him to come to that point with the league, it was the last straw for me.
