Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has hopes for a new season but says owners have to do what's best for the league. To that end, he said any talk about doing away with the draft won't fly. The same goes for proposals that impact practice and preparation.
"I think we all recognize the benefit that a draft plays and so I think that’s one point that we don’t want to compromise -- those concepts relative to how talent is distributed," Jones said. "But that’s an example [of some of the proposals we don't like]... Of how we practice, some of the things we do in practices, some of the requirements we have of the veteran players – I think when you start looking at things in those areas, the team concept, we would be better served if that is dictated by the coaches and dictated by their needs to put the best team on the field as opposed to something that is a labor proposal."
