Earlier this season, before a Monday night game at Arizona, Jones stood arm in arm with Cowboys players and coaches and took a knee on the field before the anthem.

"We as a team are very much on the page together". You understand? If we are disrespecting the flag, then we won't play.

The entire team, including Jones, locked arms and took the knee before a September 25 game against the Arizona Cardinals - but not during the National Anthem.
