It’s no secret that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is in favor of expanding the regular season, and shortening the preseason, by two games, a proposition that has been floating around the NFL landscape for some time now. Apparently, Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones isn’t opposed to the idea of an 18-game regular season, himself.
Jones recently spoke with Jagger and Barsky on KRLD FM in Dallas, per SportsRadioInterviews.com, and discussed the advantages of the proposed change, which he believes is kind of inevitable.
“We’re headed in that direction in my view,” Jones said. “That would mean two extra regular season games. Anything the regular season games would do in my view relative to increased pressure on injuries would be mitigated by the fact that we’ve cut the preseason shorter or adjusted the preseason.
“All of that is good. The idea that if you are going to have injuries, then have them in a game that counts rather that getting ready for a game that counts.”
