The NFL has told Jerry Jones to stop discussing the national anthem policy with the media.

Jones’ sudden adherence to league policy comes less than a week after he separated himself from NFL with his pronouncement of a team-mandated anthem policy of standing to attention with toes on the line or face the prospect of getting cut.

Players across the league have decried the comments while openly questioning how the NFL and NFLPA can have a meaningful negotiation with Jones already deciding on his team’s policy.
