Two of the NFL’s most outspoken owners got into a verbal altercation during a league meeting Tuesday in New York.
The men and women in charge of the NFL’s 32 franchises met in New York and in part were voting on whether or not they would permit their compensation committee to negotiate a new contract for commissioner Roger Goodell. The measure passed 31-1 as Jerry Jones was the only person against it.
At one point, Jones told Patriots owner Robert Kraft “don’t f–k with me.”
“Excuse me?” Kraft replied.
“Don’t mess with me,” Jones said.
The measure was then passed without further incident.
During a Friday appearance on 105.3 The Fan, Jones was asked if the report is accurate and he did not deny it.
“In this particular case, it’s probably accurate that I did express myself in probably a way that’s not in good taste.”
The owner’s meeting was thought to be an opportunity to discuss Commanders owner Dan Snyder, who has been facing investigations into the workplace culture of his Washington team and has himself been at the center of sexual misconduct allegations.
At the meeting, Colts owner Jim Irsay told reporters there would be “merit” in removing Snyder as owner.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
