Jerry Jones and Stephen Jones disagree whether Jerry would trade his HOF jacket for Super Bowl ring

Jerry Jones and Stephen Jones disagree whether Jerry would trade his HOF jacket for Super Bowl ring

Father and son are not on the same page. With the Cowboys season ending short of a bath in blue and silver confetti wrapped around the Lombardi Trophy, people are upset. That’s normal. Fans have begun to call into question the motives of the Cowboys brain trust. The idea that Jerry Jones doesn’t care about the success of the Cowboys is a silly one but one that circles the confines of the internet anyway. Stephen Jones took to the airwaves of 105.3 The Fan on Thursday and defended his father’s ambitions. Cowboys VP Stephen Jones on @1053thefan strongly disagrees with the idea that...

Film room: 3 offensive players the Cowboys should target in free agency, including a TE who can stretch defenses

Earlier this week, we took a look at some prospects the Cowboys may consider in the NFL draft. It only makes sense that we now turn our attention to the other major personnel component of the offseason -- free agency, which begins March 13.The Cowboys are estimated to have a little over $54 million in cap space this offseason, according to Over The Cap, but much of that will likely be taken up by re-signing (DeMarcus Lawrence) and extending those who are entering the final year on their contract (Amari Cooper, Dak Prescott, Byron Jones).Because of this and the front office's overall offseason...

If you’re wondering how much Dak Prescott’s contract extension might be worth, take a look at his and Derek Carr’s first three years

If you’re wondering how much Dak Prescott’s contract extension might be worth, take a look at his and Derek Carr’s first three years

Could this be a sign of Dak Prescott’s potential deal? One of the issues that the Dallas Cowboys front office will likely have to deal with this offseason is the contractual status of their quarterback, Dak Prescott. Prescott is a non-first-round pick entering his fourth season so he is eligible to sign an extension. Given Prescott is a fourth-round pick, he would probably very much like to sign an extension. This subject is a bull in a china shop with Cowboys fans everywhere. There’s a large contingency of folks who do not want to see the team pay Dak Prescott top dollar because they...

Cowboys 2019 offseason position priorities - where to focus free agency and the draft

Taking a look at the bigger weaknesses on the Cowboys roster. While the coaching situation is still somewhat up in the air for the Dallas Cowboys, sometime soon they will start addressing player personnel issues. Free agency, then the draft, will bring us closer to the roster we’ll see in 2019. As OCC has already noted, the Cowboys roster is remarkably young. The general consensus is that it is a talented bunch with a lot of room to grow. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t have weaknesses. The Cowboys will need to identity those and try to patch the holes before the new season begins. In no...

2019 NFL Draft: History of the 58th overall pick shows Cowboys can land someone useful

With no first-round pick, can the Cowboys land a winner in the second round? The Dallas Cowboys hold the 58th overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, it will be their first selection as they traded their first-round draft pick to the Oakland Raiders to acquire Amari Cooper. When you say it like that - the 58th overall pick - it sounds heavy and bad. It sounds like 57 players are going to be off the board so the odds of selecting someone good aren’t exactly high. For what it’s worth, there have been a handful of very good players taken with the 58th overall pick in the last decade. A...

Report: Marc Colombo to return to Cowboys as offensive line coach

The Cowboys bring back one of their own among the coaching staff. One of the biggest decisions that the 2018 Dallas Cowboys made came during their bye week when they fired offensive line coach Paul Alexander. Alexander was in his first season with the team and seven games in hadn’t shown enough to warrant staying around. Dallas chose to move on from him and promote former offensive lineman Marc Colombo to oversee the position with help from Hudson Houck. Colombo was in the final year of his contract with the Cowboys which started speculation that he could go elsewhere for next season....
