According to a source close to the Cowboys, per ESPNDallas.com, owner and general manager Jerry Jones contacted former head coach Bill Parcells on Wednesday to discuss the now-infamous video, which shows a possibly intoxicated Jones discussing their relationship candidly.
Jones, while being videotaped surreptitiously by another patron, says that Parcells "isn't worth a [expletive]," and insinuates that he brought him in, in 2003, to drum up public support for the new stadium. In four seasons with the team, Parcells never won a playoff game; but he earned two trips to the postseason, and is widely credited with rebuilding the team's roster and reputation.
Now, Parcells is in Miami as the Dolphins' executive vice president of football operations.
According to the source, Jones came away from the conversation confident that Parcells was not offended, and that the two could maintain a good relationship. Speaking to the Record, a New Jersey newspaper, Parcells didn't seem to be affected by the slurred comments.
"I know how he really feels about me," Parcells said, per the Record.
Jones has not yet made comment on the video, which surfaced on Deadspin.com earlier in the week.
According to NFL insiders, Jones is unlikely to be punished.
