Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones returned to the Minneapolis, Minnesota area on Thursday to join other owners and player reps for the continuation of the league’s labor discussions, which are expected to be put on hold for the July 4th weekend.
Owners present at the meetings include Robert Kraft of the New England Patriots and Clark Hunt of the Kansas City Chiefs--NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith are there as well, along with a good number of lawyers.
It is Jones’ first appearance at the talks since the May 31-June 2 session, which proved one of the more productive sessions since the lockout began over 100 days ago. Whether this round of talks will be as productive looks doubtful at this point, as reports have owners and players drifting apart in negotiations.
