Jerry Jones

Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson said Thursday that “it would be cool to play in Dallas, to play back home.”

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones refused to talk about that topic on 105.3 The Fan’s ”The Jerry Jones Show” on Friday.

“We don’t want to get into hypotheticals in any way,” Jones said, via USATODAY.com.  ”As a matter of fact that’s called ‘get busted’ in the NFL to be talking about somebody’s else player.”

By “get busted,” Jones is talking about the NFL anti-tampering policy:

Any public or private statement of interest, qualified or unqualified, in another club’s player to that player’s agent or representative, or to a member of the news media, is a violation of this Anti-Tampering Policy. (Example of a prohibited comment: ‘He’s an excellent player, and we’d very much like to have him if he were available, but another club holds his rights.”)

Jones will have to wait until 2017 to acquire Peterson, who signed a seven-year, $96 million contract in 2011.  But there is always the possibility of a trade.
