In response to the report that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and Vikings running back Adrian Peterson talked about Peterson playing for the Cowboys when his time with the Vikings ends, PFT contacted both teams and the league office for comment.
The first comment has arrived. And the first comment is that the NFL has no comment.
Often in cases of potential rules violations, the NFL will say that the matter is being investigated. While that may be the case as to the Jones-Peterson conversation, the league isn’t saying so. The league isn’t saying anything.
And before anyone suggests that the league will look the other way because Jones is one of the more influential owners, keep in mind that Jones received a $100,000 fine in September 2009 for talking about the CBA talks. Also, Jones’ team lost $10 million in cap space for treating the uncapped year of 2010 as uncapped.
