DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Dallas Cowboys CEO Stephen Jones says the team has spoken with quarterback Dak Prescott after TMZ reported over the weekend that he hosted a party with more than 30 people in his home during the coronavirus pandemic.
"We've certainly communicated with Dak and Zeke. I think they're certainly aware now of how sensitive these situations are and I don't think you'll be seeing that anymore," Jones said Tuesday on the K&C Masterpiece on 105.3 The Fan.
According to the report, Prescott held a birthday party at his home for one of his friends, ignoring Texas Governor Greg Abbott's executive order which says that all people in the state "shall avoid gatherings of groups of more than 10 people."
105.3 The Fan's Mike Fisher also weighed in on Prescott's party, saying he and Ezekiel Elliott's behavior should be showing Cowboys fans how to be responsible during this time at home, but instead, they did the complete opposite.
Former Dallas Cowboys defensive end Marcus Spears also called out Prescott on Monday on ESPN's 'Get Up', saying, "it's just dumb and it's totally disrespectful with what we have going on right now in this country."
This isn't the first time during the pandemic Prescott has been in the spotlight as he was already blasted by Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio and others for working out in public with Dez Bryant. When joining Shan and RJ on 105.3 The Fan, Florio called for commisioner Roger Goodell to punish both players.
"If you've got players who are violating the local laws that say 'thou shall stay home during this pandemic,' and they are both creating a real risk of spreading the virus, and sending a horrible message to others who may be influenced to do the same thing. I would like to see the NFL do something," Florio said on Shan and RJ. "Even if you're not going to suspend anyone or fine anyone under the personal conduct policy. I want the commisioner to post a video, to issue a statement, telling all players who are in the NFL or hope to be back like Dez Bryant, that they must comply with all applicable state and local requirements as what they should and shouldn't be doing during this pandemic."
