The Falcons referred all questions about the matter to league spokesman Joe Lockhart.

Blank is the chairman of the league’s compensation committee. Jones contends that Blank has ‘misled’ the owners regarding “critical facts” about the negotiations.

Coincidentally, the Cowboys play the Falcons at 4:25 p.m. Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
