Cowboys' Jerry Jones backs off on Goodell, backs Garrett

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — As soon as Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones confirmed he is backing off a threat of legal action over the future of Commissioner Roger Goodell, the focus turned to the performance of coach Jason Garrett and his staff.

That's how bad the tailspin is for a team desperately missing suspended star running back Ezekiel Elliott.

Jones said after Dallas' third straight loss by at least 20 points — 28-6 to the Los Angeles Chargers on Thanksgiving — that the compensation committee was being responsive to his concerns about a contract extension for Goodell.
