Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has found himself in hot water after an ESPN profile about him came out. In the article there is an excerpt that has Jones talking to Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson about him one day playing for the Dallas Cowboys and finishing his career in his home state.
Peterson came out and called it a casual conversation in a statement, and Jones doesn’t seem to worried about it either.
“I understand the tampering thing, and you have to be an initiator,” Jones said before the Cowboy’s fourth and final preseason game on 105.3 FM The Fan. “When that came in, I happened to be standing there with that writer. Matter of fact, I think he might have handed me the phone from the guy who was on the phone. It was Adrian. It was good talking to him. I’m a big admirer of him.”
Jones said that the majority of the conversation was about Texas and came shortly after a George Strait concert at the Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium. Jones also said that he doesn’t expect to face tampering charges for the conversation.
Jerry Jones tells @gbagnation he doesn't expect to face tampering charges for Adrian Peterson conversation "because we weren't (tampering)."

With the NFL’s wildly inconsistent punishments, who knows what will happen.
