Jerry Jones suggests wiggle room over Cowboys’ anthem policy


By SCHUYLER DIXON, the Associated Press

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is showing more willingness to consider the points of view of players over kneeling during the national anthem. The owner who has taken the hardest line among his NFL counterparts against protesting during the anthem sidestepped the question of changing his policy requiring players to stand. Jones is acknowledging a changing social tide after the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. Quarterback Dak Prescott says discussions among teammates are “heating up” over how to express social views before games.
