Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Speaks On How His Team Will Treat the National Anthem

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones spoke to the media on Wednesday, and among the topics were how the team was going to treat the national anthem this upcoming season.

Jones says that the club will treat the anthem with “grace,” but stopped short of saying that he was going to force his players to stand.

“I have nothing to prove regarding my players and my support of our players,” Jones said.

“What I do want to show and want us all to be a part of is a word called ‘grace’. Grace. Not only grace in our actions, but grace in our understanding, where they’re coming from. I want our players to understand the perception and where they’re coming from regarding the flag and the sensitivity there and the many memories there.

Jones also spoke about being open to conversation about the anthem, and that he is more than willing to listen to the players on the roster.

“My job is to run the Dallas Cowboys, my job is to do what’s right. We’ve asked for all of this interest, and we’ve asked for all of our players to give everything they got. And I want to sit down, when I have an issue and I have a decision to make, I want to show the world that I can do it with grace and come up with the right solution,” Jones said.

“I don’t know what we’re going to be faced with here a month from now or two months from now. When it happens, I’m giving you the backdrop of how I’ll make the decision at the time or encourage our players. Our players have always been open ears for anything that I have to offer and I’ve been open ears for what they have to offer and that’s what we’ll do.”
