The football world is somewhat abuzz today, after a video featuring a possibly-sauced Jerry Jones speaking on Tim Tebow and Bill Parcells surfaced on Deadspin.com on Tuesday afternoon.

But, according to one pretty reliable NFL "insider" Jones will not likely be punished.

Chris Mortensen of ESPN said on SportsCenter this morning, per ProFootballTalk.com, that he would be very surprised if the NFL reprimanded Jones for the grainy, 48-second video, in which he says that Bill Parcells is "not worth a [expletive]" and argues that Tim Tebow "would never see the field" if he were drafted by Dallas.

While the video isn't Jones's finest moment by any means, it doesn't seem grounds for any real, league-mandated punishment. Jones followed up the "not worth a [expletive]" remark by saying "I love him." And as far as Tebow is concerned, there are likely more than a few around the league that have expressed a similar sentiment.

According to PFT, league spokesman Greg Aiello said that the NFL has no comment concerning the video; the Cowboys, too, have declined comment, per ESPN.
