Cowboys owner Jerry Jones seldom shies away from a fight, even if his record against commissioner Roger Goodell and the league isn’t very good lately.
After failing to get running back Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension overturned last year, and then taking a $2 million loss on legal fees in his efforts to block Goodell’s contract extension, Jones said he had no regrets standing up to the league’s power structure.
I’m going to let Roger speak to about here, what’s (been) discussed, Jones said. You know where I am on it. But where it is, is everybody’s going to think about it, talk back and forth on it a little Authentic Luis Severino Jersey bit and then we’ll be more definitive after the May meeting.

Part of the reason it’s interesting to see Jones defer on any issue is because it rarely happens, but after paying a de facto fine for stepping out of line, he’s perhaps a bit more willing now.

They would seemingly need more time to develop the language and enforcement of any such penalty, which would seemingly follow the college rules that allow officials to eject players for helmet-to-helmet hits. But it appears enough owners are serious about the idea that it could come to fruition, in some form.
The retooling of the Raiders under new coach Jon Gruden will continue without tight end Clive Walford.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Oakland will cut Walford. Schefter adds that Walford, who was due to make $1.9 million, is expected to find a new home quickly, but no potential landing spots are included in the report.
