Jerry Jones was notably silent as football season approached with the NFL engulfed in the nation’s larger race reckoning.
As the league shifted its stance to match public sentiment on player protest, the normally outspoken Dallas Cowboys owner had nothing to say publicly on the matter.
Now the season has started. A Cowboy has knelt. And Jones is back to his regularly scheduled media rounds. On Tuesday he addressed Sunday night’s pregame against the Los Angeles Rams that saw Dallas defensive tackle Dontari Poe take a knee during the national anthem.
