Cowboys Owner Impressed By Atlanta Stadium

Jerry Jones knows a thing or two about putting together a plan for an impressive venue. The Cowboys owner opened AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas in 2009 — an opulent building that is commonly referred to by NFL fans as "Jerry's World."

The plans and construction underway in downtown Atlanta for Mercedes-Benz Stadium, set to open in 2017, have caught Jones' eye.

ESPN.com writer Vaughn McClure caught up with Jones at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., this week and Jones was eager to compliment Arthur Blank's vision for the iconic venue he's building.

"Well, that stadium has Super Bowl written all over it," Jones told ESPN.com. "It is nothing short of magnificent, and I'm not exaggerating. With the entire franchise, (Blank) has put his heart and soul into it. He'll do anything to win. And he hasn't spared the rod on that stadium. he has, just every step of the way, expanded the scope of it by making it just as good as good can be.

"I'm very proud to have him as an owner in the league. And I'm very proud of that stadium not only for the Atlanta fans, the Falcons fans, but also for the league. It's going to be one of our great assets. It's certainly going to be a great pace to play a Super Bowl."
