So let me get into the dance room and start choreographing some dances.”Jones isn’t criticizing the big boss, Commissioner Roger Goodell, for the old, restrictive rules.While the rule change will make the game more fun for fans and players, Jones is also happy he won’t be worried so much about controlling his emotions in the middle of a game.“You’re out there and you’re thinking about, ‘Alright, am I showing too much emotion?

Let me act like I’ve been there before,’ no. I am going to dance. I am going to dance when I get back there.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Arizona Cardinals linebacker Chandler Jones (55) recovers the fumble by New England Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo during the first half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Sept. 11, 2016, in Glendale, Ariz.
