Jerry Jones brought out an old argument when discussing how to fix the NFL's preseason.

The Dallas Cowboys owner believes an 18-game regular season would be a valid solution.

"I was a big advocate in the last negotiation. I made the presentation," Jones said. "You can see how I did."

The owners weren't able to convince the players that a longer regular season was a good idea and the rising concern over concussions makes adding two games to the season unlikely.

The NFL has played four preseason games and 16 regular season games for 40 years. Jones is a proponent of an 18-2 season.

"I can make the case that we have an uptick in concussions in the preseason," he said. "If you look at it, I would contend there would be less exposure." Jones said.
