Jerry Jones: Colin Kaepernick workout was a 'circus' ... 'wasn't about football'
Wed, 20 Nov 2019 01:44:24 GMT
The Dallas Cowboys were not among the 25 teams to send a representative to Atlanta for Colin Kaepernick's scheduled NFL-sanctioned workout on Saturday. On Tuesday, owner Jerry Jones talked about why the Cowboys didn't attend and addressed the controversy that ensued when Kaepernick ended up holding his own workout.

Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart is one of the best defensive players in the NBA, so he's uniquely qualified to speak on the debate over which player in the league is the most unstoppable. Smart was posed this question in a recent video done by The Players' Tribune, and his pick for the league's most unstoppable player wasn't Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James, Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo or Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant (when healthy, of course). It was Kawhi Leonard, who's in his first season with the Los Angeles Clippers after signing with them in free agency over the summer.

In fact, most in football media questioned how Jon Gruden could allow a generational talent like Mack leave Oakland. But here we are, entering the final six games of the second season removed from the trade, and the Raiders are riding the legs of rookie running back Josh Jacobs to the tune of a 6-4 record and a legitimate shot for a playoff berth.
