Later that month, the owners were set to vote on granting the six-member compensation committee, led by Arthur Blank, authority to begin negotiating Goodell’s extension. To get the requisite 21 votes to move forward, Blank felt he needed the powerful Jones behind him. I want you on the committee, Blank said.
I won’t go on the committee, Jones replied. I want to be an ombudsman. I want to literally represent the owners who are not on the committee.

Jones, 28, has just 43 receptions for 658 yards and a lone touchdown this season, but it’s not just Jones’ fault, the entire Falcons offense has struggled.
The Falcons began the season with three straight wins, jumping out to an early lead in the NFC South. But their recent skid has knocked them back to third in the division and currently out of the playoff picture.

Instead, nothing could be further from the truth. The Vikings have relied on Keenum since Week 2 after Bradford’s knee locked up in the opener, and all he has done since is play like a superstar. Keenum’s QBR jumped up to 73.9 this season, placing him second in the league behind Watson. He continues to hold on to the football, having gone down to just five sacks and zero fumbles in eight starts.
