Cowboys pondering immobilizing players cars

Jonathan Daniel

The Dallas Cowboys could put into place a mandate requiring that players use electronic devices that would immobilize their cars if intoxicated, according to Cowboys consultant Calvin Hill.

Since Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent was arrested following a car crash that killed linebacker Jerry Brown Jr., Calvin Hill has been pondering ways to make the team's players more safe.

Hill, a consultant for the Cowboys with the role of administering off-the-field support programs, put forth one idea that could stop future drunk-driving incidents from occurring. He threw out the idea of mandating that Cowboys players would have to use electronic devices inside of their cars which would immobilize the vehicles if the driver was impaired.

It's not known whether or not the NFL Players Association would allow such a mandate to go into effect. The NFL does have programs in place to stop drunk driving, including a program that allows players to call for rides when they can't drive safely.

Hill also said that the team could use a program developed by Mothers Against Drunk Driving, which are already in use by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Pittsburgh Steelers.
