Jerry Jones Addresses His Controversial Message For Robert Kraft

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones

The NFL owners' meeting this week has provided some entertaining headlines.

Controversy surrounding Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder stole the show. But we also got two of the most high-profile owners in the league going at it in Jerry Jones and Robert Kraft.

Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, reportedly had a heated exchanged with the New England Patriots owner during which he told Kraft "don't f--k with me."

During a radio interview Friday, Jones didn't deny the outburst. Instead, he said his comment was "not in good taste."

"Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to @1053thefan on telling Robert Kraft 'don’t f--- with me': 'It’s not surprising to me that it would get out.' Assumes when speaking it is being recorded. 'It’s probably accurate that I did express myself in probably a way that’s not in good taste.' -- Michael Gehlken

Jones wasn't exactly penitent. He made it sound like his biggest mistake was not assuming the conversation was being recorded.

The argument between Jones and Kraft reportedly came during discussions about a new contract for NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. The owners voted 31-1 to open negotiations for a new deal with Goodell, with Jones being the lone dissenter.
