Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has tons of respect for Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning heading into Sunday's game at AT&T Stadium.
He says Manning is playing some of the best football of his career for the undefeated Broncos and calls him a dear friend. But Jones said the Cowboys didn't pursue Manning in free agency last year because of his commitment and belief in quarterback Tony Romo.
"I was so committed to Romo, so committed to his future," Jones said on his radio show on KRLD-FM. "Of course, Peyton has been a friend for a long time and someone we respect a lot. There were a lot of moving parts during that particular time. The real reason it didn’t work out is because we are as committed as we are to Tony."Clarence Hill
