Cowboys Players Feel For Their Coaches

The Cowboys coaching staff were one of the many teams to release a statement disapproving of the amicus brief that the NFL Coaches Association filed with the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in support of the players’ in their antitrust lawsuit against the NFL.

“The Dallas Cowboys’ coaching staff did not approve of the brief filed with the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals by the National Football League Coaches Association,” the Cowboys’ staff announced in a statement last week. “We did not provide Larry Kennan with the authority to file such brief on our behalf and do not agree with the brief’s position. Like everyone involved in the NFL, we are looking forward to a new CBA and the start of the 2011 NFL season.”

Cowboys players know that the lockout has put coaches in a tough spot, writes Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News.

“Yeah, the coaches are the ones who are most caught in limbo,” Cowboys defensive end Stephen Bowen said. “They really want to talk to us. But they’re hired by the owners. It’s a tough situation. Hopefully, it will work itself out soon and we’ll be able to play football.”

Bowen knows a thing or two about being in limbo, as his free agent status won’t be determined until a new collective bargaining agreement is reached. The Cowboys placed a second-round tender on Bowen, but with five accrued seasons, the 6-foot-5, 303-pound former undrafted free agent from Hofstra could hit the open market.
