Jerry Jones in D.C. for labor talks
By Calvin Watkins
The NFL ownership labor committee is in Washington, D.C. for the talks with the NFLPA and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is there team officials have confirmed.
Jones was also part of a brief session with a few owners last week in Indianapolis. Jones met with reporters for about 30 minutes before heading over to his Friday morning meeting.
Well this time, with the deadline to avoid a potential lockout coming tomorrow night, the entire ownership committee is invovled to possibly curtail a legal mess.
The owners are expected to have a brief meeting around 11 CT with more talks with the union possibly for the evening.
The NFL’s labor committee consists of Jerry Richardson (co-chair), Pat Bowlen (co-chair), Mike Brown, John Mara, Art Rooney, Clark Hunt, Mark Murphy, Robert Kraft, Dean Spanos and Jones.
