While discussing the Dallas Cowboys' position on the national anthem, Stephen Jones said in a radio interview that players should stand "if they want to be a Dallas Cowboy."
Jones told KTCK 96.7 FM that the team supports the opinions of the players, but that those issues should be put aside while they are representing the Cowboys.
"We certainly are supportive of them when they have their personal issues or their personal things that they want to pursue," Jones said. "And we'll help them pursue them on Tuesdays. But when you're wearing the Dallas Cowboy uniform and a Dallas Cowboy helmet and you're working for the Dallas Cowboys, you check the 'I' and the 'me' at the door, and you're a part of a team."
Jones added that players would face punishment if they chose to stay in the locker room for the anthem.
