Yes, if he had been simply released without any off-the-field issues -- no question. But since Matt Jones, the former Arkansas quarterback-turned-NFL-receiver, has been released after getting busted for cocaine possession and violating his plea agreement by drinking, there is no chance Jerry Jones makes this move (I think).
When it was speculated Matt Jones could be released last offseason the instant connection was Dallas and his Hog friends. I remember watching Cowboys practice at Valley Ranch at the time and vice president Stephen Jones walked off the field and was told Matt Jones could be released by Jacksonville. And boy, his eyes popped open and ears perked with interest. Those were just rumors at the time.
Now, it's a reality. But Jerry can't afford another player with substance issues. Been burned too many times already. Has that been said before?
