NFL Notebook: Doors open at $1.5 billion Dallas stadium

Associated Press
The NFL notebook …
ARLINGTON, Texas ó The doors are open, and the price tag is in on the Cowboys’ new stadium.
Billed as a ribbon-cutting, Wednesday’s official opening was a bit more elaborate. Hundreds showed up to celebrate, including politicians and former Cowboys.
Arlington Mayor Bob Cluck and team owner Jerry Jones did the honors, throwing a switch that set off fireworks and opened five huge glass sliding doors at one of the two end-zone plazas.
The team also unveiled the official price tag at $1.15 billion for the 80,000-seat stadium. That’s slightly higher than the long-presumed number of $1.1 billion.
The first event will be a George Strait-Reba McIntire concert June 6.
COLTS
INDIANAPOLIS ó All Peyton Manning wants from the Indianapolis Colts is a game plan. It may take the team a little longer to satisfy the three-time MVP.
The front office is trying determine how retired assistants Tom Moore and Howard Mudd will fit into this season’s coaching plans. Manning, who usually toes the company line, would like a better understanding of what to expect.
“Somebody says one thing, then somebody else says another thing,” he said Tuesday after a minicamp workout. “I’m not sure everybody’s on the same page in this building. I’m just trying to focus on playing quarterback well.”
JETS
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. ó New York Jets running back Thomas Jones rejoined his teammates Wednesday after boycotting voluntary workouts.
Jones, who led the AFC with 1,312 yards rushing last season, was on the field for organized team activities after sitting out the Jets’ previous six OTAs and minicamp.
BILL
SORCHARD PARK, N.Y. ó Buffalo Bills starting cornerback Terrence McGee hurt his right arm when he tumbled to the turf while defending receiver Terrell Owens during a voluntary minicamp practice on Wednesday.
STEELERS
PITTSBURGH ó The agent of Steelers linebacker James Harrison says the player’s young son has been released from a Pittsburgh hospital after an attack by his father’s pit bull.
Two-year-old James Harrison III was bitten on the thigh after his mother let the dog out of its pen Thursday afternoon.
