Jerry Jones credits son Stephen for getting Cowboys out of salary cap 'Armageddon'

One more tidbit from Jerry Jones’ conversation with reporters at the Senior Bowl this week:

He said executive vice president Stephen Jones maneuvered the Cowboys into a good position on the salary cap for the offseason this year.

“I give Stephen a lot of credit for taking a year we thought would be Armageddon for us, and we were able to do some things last year with the cap that puts us and gives us some viability,” Jones said. “Stephen and a lot of the crew he works with regarding the caps, regarding the contracts, all of that has given us a chance to have some room to improve this team this year.

“And we will use it.”

Jones does not want to waste any of Romo’s remaining years. Jones believes Romo gives the Cowboys a chance to be a Super Bowl team every year.

But for now, the Cowboys should worry about winning the NFC East. They were third last year, despite leading it with five games to go.

“It’s very important we’re highly competitive this year,” he said. “Of course, we see how well the Giants are playing. We saw and do understand how well Philadelphia can play. And Washington probably, without fail, will improve a couple of areas – quarterback – that they did, in my mind, did a good job with. So our division is a lot more competitive, as I see it, than it’s given credit for.”

I agree with your idea.You look like very talented.It is very happy to meet you. Thank you!

Carlos Mendez Jones,

you are like who was that reciever they said all he does is catch Touchdowns? Cris Carter? All you do is write Jerry crap. How much does he pay you to keep his name in print at your rag?

Isn't this the same duo that got the team in salary cap hell in the first place?
Jerry just give the GM job to Stephen...... PLEASE!

Yawn... Just more of Jerry's hot air. Nothing will change until Jerry hires a GM and then steps back and lets the GM take over.

I defended our team owner Jerry Jones for over 15 years because he IS a good man and WAS a good team owner. Clint Murchison was a GREAT team owner. He hired a GM, stepped back and watched our team earn 20 consecutive winning seasons, two Super Bowl wins, 5 NFC titles, 13 Divisional titles and adulation across America and overseas.
Under the current GM we won three Superbowls in the 1990's but have won onlt two post season games in the last 16 years.
A goods owner would fire his GM and throw his son the keys. It's that time, Jerry.

+1 to Alex.

Who here votes to at least give Stephen a chance to be GM?
