We would imagine ever since the NFL moved the NFL Draft from New York City, where it had been held every year since 1965, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been working to figure out a way to bring that event to his billion dollar stadium in Arlington.

The past two years now, the draft has been held in Chicago. But the host city for 2017 hasn’t been decided, which only fuels Jones’s hope that the NFL will bring the event to AT&T Stadium sooner than later.
