Billionaire owner of "American Team," the Dallas Cowboys, seems to be caving just a little bit on his "toe the line' national Anthem kneeling policy.
Jerry had threatened to cut players that kneeled during the anthem, but he's now saying he will have an open dialogue with the team over the policy.
Jerry says he's been in contact with several powerful people over how the Cowboys should move forward with the policy ... saying both past and current U.S. presidents have shared their feelings with him on the matter.
"I have talked to literally double handfuls of very, very engaged people," Jones said. "I have had input from ex-presidents, I've had input from presidents."
"I've had input from a cross-section of our players, former players and I will continue to have input. This is a very serious matter."
He continued to stress that he's going to handle the situation with "grace."
You'll hear more about it in one of the upcoming episodes of "We Don't Give a Damn" sports news.
Defensive End, Joey Bosa, snags a contract with the Charges worth $135 Million over 5 years. $102 million of this is guaranteed. He gets $78 million of it at signing.
You can't beat this. During this Covid climate where we really don't know with absolute certainty of our future and the future of sports, this is something serious.
Terry Glenn Jr., son of the late NFL star, died on Thanksgiving from an accidental overdose.
He was found by familiy members in a bathroom in his home in Columbus, Ohio. Earlier that day, he had been tweeting about his father, Terry Glenn, who died almost 2 years ago to the day in a horrific car crash on the way home from a Dallas Cowboys game on Nov. 20th, 2017. Toxicology later revealed that Glenn Sr. had a .165 blood-alcohol level at the time of the crash.
Glenn Jr. tweeted, "I miss him so much, this time of the year is the hardest by far man...this was his holiday and the last one got cut short right before we were allllll gonna be together... really just wonder why."
In the week since Colin Kaepernick worked out for seven NFL teams at Charles R. Drew High School in Riverdale, Georgia, no teams have reached out to work him out, visit with him or sign him, according to league sources.
Kaepernick, 32, remains unemployed, and NFL teams remain uninterested in his services -- the same story that has followed the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback for almost three years.
What's Next For Kaepernick?
To say the San Francisco 49ers' schedule is about to get tougher over the next three weeks would drastically understate what's coming.
The journey the Niners are about to begin -- with games against the Green Bay Packers, Baltimore Ravens and New Orleans Saints -- could be the most difficult stretch any team has faced this late in the season in the Super Bowl era.
Can they Survive? Can they Win?
I say NO!
