If the Dallas Cowboys host the 2018 NFL Draft, would it be at AT&T Stadium in Arlington or The Star in Frisco?

Both.

Executive vice president Stephen Jones said the team has indeed submitted a formal bid to the host next year’s NFL Draft and it includes using both facilities for the three-day event.

The NFL will ultimately decide which direction it wants to go, if it chooses the Cowboys bid at all.

The 2017 draft was held in Philadelphia and there is a chance it could remain there for another year.

The Cowboys are just waiting for the final word. The league has put no timeframe on the decision.

“They know how we can configure for X-amount of people,’’ Jones said. “Then they’ll come back to us with what they want. “We don’t know exactly what they’ll want to do. We’re waiting to hear on that.’’
