Cowboys will bid to play host to event at team’s multibillion dollar facilities
Everything’s bigger in Texas, and Jerry Jones wants the NFL to take advantage of it in the offseason. In the case of the Dallas Cowboys, that adage is often literal, especially when it comes to the team’s facilities — be it AT&T Stadium in Arlington or The Star in Frisco. The latter is what Hall of Fame owner Jerry Jones wants the NFL and league Commissioner Roger Goodell to focus on as it relates to the NFL Scouting Combine, though. It’s a facility perfectly designed to play host to the event and, to that point, the Cowboys will make a bid to do just that, sources tell CBS Sports.
Held in Indianapolis since 1987, the league has acquiesced to the exponential growth regarding popularity of the event along with a historically high involvement of prospects and media, and has finally opened the door for a possible move by allowing teams to stake their claim as to why they deserve to play host. The five-day event draws millions of viewers from around the globe and any location deemed worthy would have to be one that can provide an elite presentation of the NFL and handle all that comes with the combine from a logistics standpoint.
North Texas checks both of those boxes, and then some.
