GREEN BAY Womens Emmitt Smith Jersey , Wis.— Packers running back Aaron Jones has been fined more than $10,000 for waving goodbye to Dallas Cowboys cornerback Byron Jones on his way to the end zone.Jones confirmed to ESPN on Friday that the NFL fined him $10,527 for taunting/unsportsmanlike conduct.More Packers coverageRodgers’ recent near-perfect play leaves LaFleur ‘speechless’Packers Snap Counts: Darnell Savage returns from ankle injuryUpon Further Review: Packers lean on running backs in win over ChiefsPHOTOS: Packers at ChiefsRodgers, Jones lead Packers past Chiefs 31-24The gesture came on the third of Jones’ franchise record-tying four touchdowns in a 34-24 victory Sunday at Dallas. Jones had 182 yards of total offense (107 rushing, 75 receiving) in the win.Jones says he will appeal the fine, hoping it might get reduced because he is first-time offender.The third-year pro claimed after the game that he didn’t realize he waved at the Cowboys’ defender. He still claims he was “just in the zone” but that a picture of him doing so was “dope.” He tells ESPN: “I’m going to have that blown up one day in my house.” Earlier today Emmitt Smith Jersey , the Cleveland Browns fired head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley. With a head coaching job now available in the NFL, Oklahoma Sooners coach Lincoln Riley was asked about his interest in the NFL. His connection to Baker Mayfield made the question something that was bound to come up. As you may expect, a college coach in the middle of the season, especially one fighting for a possible national title, would immediately declare he is not interested. After all, you still got some games to go and you don’t want any distractions at the end of the schedule and into a possible playoff situation. But Lincoln Riley didn’t exactly shoot it down forever Emmitt Smith Jersey White , just for right now.So why does this relate to the Cowboys? Well, in truth, it only does through conjecture and speculation. Jason Garrett, even though he has gotten votes of confidence from the Joneses, could be coaching for his job. It’s fair to say that much of Cowboys Nation is reaching the end of their patience with the current regime and if the 2018 season doesn’t play out right, the clamor for a new head coach will be loud. So loud that the Joneses may not be able to resist it. It’s also no secret that many fans have their eye on Lincoln Riley if there is a coaching change. Riley is young but his team’s in Oklahoma are offensive juggernauts and with the mixing of college concepts into the pro game increasing every year Womens Ezekiel Elliott Jersey , Jerry Jones may remember fondly another college coach he once plucked for the pro game, Jimmy Johnson.Oddsmakers have listed Riley among the favorites to replace Garrett if it comes to that in the offseason. A simple Google search with the words Lincoln Riley and Dallas Cowboys brings up a multitude of stories connecting those two. They contain quotes likes this one from Kirk Herbstreit in the offseason.Riley’s comments today make it pretty clear that at some point he would consider the NFL, so it’s worth keeping an eye on as we proceed in the 2018 season. If things start to go south on the Cowboys and Jason Garrett, speculation on changing coaches will only grow.Also, Todd Haley was included in that firing in Cleveland. Haley, of course Michael Gallup Jersey , was a former wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator in Dallas under Bill Parcells. He’s since had stints as offensive coordinator in Arizona, Pittsburgh and as head coach in Kansas City. People will likely connect him to Dallas in some way this offseason just because of his previous tenure here.Jason Garrett has some time left in this season to secure his future. For all we know, he may not even be on the bubble with Jerry and Stephen Jones. There are so many variables at play. If the Cowboys can somehow make the playoffs the whole question likely becomes moot. But if there is a change, Riley would make an interesting candidate, and while he made it clear he wasn’t interested “right now” it sure sounded like he could be convinced in the future. Maybe a future as soon as this offseason. The coaching carousel is beginning.
