Jerry Jones Kneels During The Anthem With His Players

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones linked arms and kneeled with the team’s players ahead of the national anthem this evening.

On Sunday, NFL players, teams and owners across the league participated in a peaceful protest by kneeling, locking arms or skipping the playing of the national anthem all together in response to President Donald Trump’s criticism of players who “disrespect” the U.S.

The Cowboys, who are in Arizona to face off against the Cardinals, stood and joined arms while the national anthem was sung, as did the Cardinals.

A photo tweeted by the Cowboys’ Twitter account showed Jones kneeling alongside the players before the anthem’s singing, with the caption “#FootballIsFamily.”
