Dallas Cowboys praised Jon Bon Jovi and his ambition of someday becoming an NFL owner.

According to John Kyrk of QMI Agency (via The Toronto Sun), Jones hails Bon Jovi as an "outstanding" candidate to be a team owner of the Buffalo Bills:  

"Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on Monday called expected Buffalo Bills bidder Jon Bon Jovi 'a great friend' and an 'outstanding' candidate to become an NFL owner. 

"'I don't know of anyone that I have any more respect for as a father, or as a husband, or certainly as a potential business partner,' Jones told QMI Agency in a scrum with NFL writers in the Ritz-Carlton Buckhead Hotel, as the league's spring meeting opened.'

"'And it's a credit to him that he's had the career that he's had, that he's qualified to become an NFL owner. As we know, you can't just wish for that. You have to be able to do something about that financially. So he's an outstanding candidate to be an owner in the NFL, and he's a great friend.'

"Shortly after the death of founding Bills owner Ralph Wilson in late March, QMI Agency confirmed that Bon Jovi is indeed a front man of a Toronto group expected to bid on the club. 

"Larry Tannenbaum, chairman of the Toronto-based Maple Leafs Sports & Entertainment empire, is the other principal member of the group."

Jones also told Kyrk that the other NFL owners are vouching for Bon Jovi's candidacy. 

"He knows many of the owners, personally. All owners know of him. But he knows them personally. He's committed, he's very genuine. 

"You talk about individuals and talk about their qualification -- there hasn't been anybody more qualified to be involved in sports ownership, or certainly ownership in the NFL, than Jon Bon Jovi. 

Kyrk then asked Jones about Toronto's potential as an NFL city. 

"I do know first-hand that football is and can be even more so a very enthustiastically-followed sport in Toronto. I know that because a lot of Toronto follows the Buffalo Bills. 

"I'm not familiar enough with that market to know the dynamics relative to what might happen if the Bills end up in Toronto." 

In a separate development, Jones said playoff expansion will help the Cowboys, per NFL.com's Mike Coppinger. 

"The Dallas Cowboys have failed to qualify for the postseason each of the past four years. Could help be on the way? 

"Playoff expansion is set to be discussed at the Spring League Meeting this week, and, if Jerry Jones gets his way, the playoff field will be expanded. 

"In an interview with NFL Media's Kimberly Jones that aired Monday on 'NFL Total Access,' Jerry quipped a rule change 'would help my Cowboys.'

"But would it really help? The 'Boys have missed postseason play over the past four seasons even if there were two extra playoff squads per conference."
