ARLINGTON (May 30, 2012) -- Jerry Jones says he has no interest in going to federal court to seek relief after an arbitrator upheld the NFL's salary cap reductions against the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins.
The Cowboys owner remains emphatic that there was no secret deal among NFL owners about any kind of cap during the uncapped 2010 season. Jones said Wednesday that the arbitrator ruled last week that the proper jurisdiction to hear the teams' grievance was federal court.
Dallas lost $10 million in the salary cap for overloading contracts during 2010, while the Redskins lost $36 million for this season and next.
Jones also said that he has no plans to trade cornerback Mike Jenkins, who again is not at voluntary workouts this week.
