In what has become a weirder and weirder story this week, the Dallas Cowboys, center Phil Costa in particular, accused the Washington Redskins’ of mimicking their snap count during their meeting last Monday night. The thought is that this effort could have been helped by the presence of defensive end Stephen Bowen, the defensive end who went from Dallas to Washington this offseason.
Then, Bowen called Costa a Liar.
Now, Cowboys’ owner and general manager Jerry Jones is saying more or less that the league has taken their side in the matter, and issued a memo to all 32 teams to remind them that mimicking snap counts is illegal and warn them that doing so could lead to penalties moving forward. Jones said as much during his weekly radio show this morning, via the Dallas Morning News.
Of course, no flags were thrown for call mimicking in Monday night’s Cowboys victory, and the team only had a handful of botched snaps to show for what they would later contend that the Redskins were up to.
