However, Jones is facing a bigger crisis with the team. It isn't just Elliott who's getting in trouble; 2017 draft pick Jourdan Lewis was arrested for domestic violence. Shaq Evans was suspended by the NFL for substance abuse policy before being waived by the Cowboys. This is a part of a growing character issue that has hit the NFL hard, but has mainly hit the Cowboys hard.
So what should Jones do the next time one of his star players acts up? He should suspend them himself. It would send a clear message that the organization will not be soiled by juvenile actions of a player. This would show that this is Jerry's team and there's a code of conduct to follow. If the player acts up again, release them regardless of how big their contribution is. This is giving Jerry's organization a black eye and would restore a sterling reputation to the Cowboys.
Update: Police have misidentified a man that appears to look like Lucky Whitehead. The Cowboys still stand by their decision to cut him.
