Jerry Jones 'Tried To Get Cute' By Believing In Brandon Weeden

Nov 20, 2015 2:16 PM

Jerry Jones praised Brandon Weeden became the Dallas Cowboys' starter following the injury to Tony Romo.

"You won't see a more gifted passer," said Jones at the time.

Jones admits he made a mistake with Weeden.

"I've tried to get cute at the QB spot," Jones said.

Jones believes the Cowboys would have won a few of the games they lost with Weeden had Matt Cassel been there the whole time.

Troy Aikman: Jerry Jones 'Pretty Much Accepts Everything'

Nov 13, 2015 11:18 AM

Troy Aikman talked about the willingness of Jerry Jones to accept any type of behavior from players as long as they produce.

Aikman was asked about how Jones has backed Greg Hardy and whether there would be a point where it is no longer worth the off the field issues.

"I guess the line is when he's no longer productive, you know? I think that's always been the line for Jerry Jones, is he's one to pretty much accept everything as long as a guy's productive," Aikman said, per SportsDayDFW.com.

"There's not many owners in this league like that. Obviously, (Carolina Panthers owner) Jerry Richardson isn't like that. They could certainly use Hardy in Carolina even though they're undefeated. As far as a pass rusher, they don't have that type of guy, but (Richardson) wasn't going to keep him. I think over the years, if you just look at the history of the moves that have been made and the players that have come through, the indiscretion's that if at some point he's not productive, then he won't be on the team any longer regardless of whatever it is that's going on off the field, and if he is productive, then he'll be here as long as he is."

Nov 11, 2015 10:58 AM

Greg Hardy made a statement that he was innocent until proven guilty and is a victim of discrimination by changing his Twitter profile for a brief time Wednesday morning.

"Innocent until proven guilty-lack of knowledge & information is just ignorance-the unjust/prejudicial treatment of diff categories of people is discrimination," he wrote.

While his Twitter handle remained @OverlordKraken, he changed his name to "Perfection."

Hardy later took that profile down, changed the account name to "Machiavelli Kraken" and changed his profile to this: "Come with me Hail Mary Run quick see What do we have here now wana be my ride or die La la la la la la (SuperBlockParty)."

Joseph Randle Suspended Four Games By NFL

Nov 10, 2015 5:59 PM

Joseph Randle has been suspended without pay for four games for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.

Randle was recently released by the Dallas Cowboys.

"I'm always concerned as to any issues regarding the (mental) health of a player," Jerry Jones said last week, per ESPN.com. "It's a lot more serious than the football (injury)."

Randle has shown productivity at running back but lost his job to Darren McFadden.

Cowboys Decline Comment On Release Of Greg Hardy Photos

Nov 6, 2015 3:16 PM

The Dallas Cowboys have declined comment on the release of photos by Deadspin of Greg Hardy's ex-girlfriend's bruises.

The Deadspin piece also includes records of how he threw Nicole Holder against a bathroom wall, onto a bed covered with assault rifles, choking her and threatening her life at his apartment.

Hardy was signed by the Cowboys this past offseason.

In February, when the case was thrown out, Hardy asked that the charges be expunged from his record, The Charlotte Observer reports. In April, he filed paperwork with the same request, and a judge in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, signed the order this week.

That means the incident is not listed on Hardy's record.

Jerry Jones recently praised Hardy as a "real leader."

Hardy was suspended by the NFL on April 22 for the first 10 games of this season, but that suspension was reduced to four games by arbitrator Harold Henderson on July 10.

Dez Bryant Denies Making Derogatory Remarks About Ricardo Lockette

Nov 1, 2015 11:41 PM

Dez Bryant went on a tirade towards the media in response to a Vine that allegedly showed him making derogatory remarks about Ricardo Lockette.

The Vine was created by Marcus Sullivan, who has a verified Twitter account. Sullivan, a Fox26 digital reporter, posted, " #DezBryant after the #Seahawks #RicardoLockette was knocked out of the game "That's what the F He gets" smh!"

"I won't ever, ever, ever, ever wish bad on a player that's been knocked down. C'mon, man. Stop with the bulls---," said Bryant, dressed in football pants and shower shoes. "Not once did I say that's what you get. I got on one knee and prayed for that man.

"I got on one knee and prayed for him. C'mon, man. Don't put clips together and do that."

Bryant was asked if the Seahawks accused him of saying that about Lockette.

"It didn't have nothing to do with [Lockette]," Bryant responded when asked what was said on the video. "I swear on my daughter's soul I would never in my life do that to anybody. I could've been talking about something completely ...

"I'm too busy trying to break it up, trying to get our players back. I'm telling Richard [Sherman] and Earl [Thomas] y'all get your players back. I'm talking to the officials more than anybody."

Bryant threatened to stop speaking to the media this season.
