Jerry Jones: Cowboys' Skid 'Not Just' On Jason Garrett

Oct 14, 2019 8:39 AM

The Dallas Cowboys have lost three straight games, but Jerry Jones isn't ready to pin all of the blame on Jason Garrett.

The Cowboys jumped out to a 3-0 mark with one of the NFL's highest scoring offenses.

"I'm going to be very trite. I was a lot happier with what he had done the first three games than what's happened the last three games," Jones said of Garrett. "But the big thing I want to say is it's not just him. This is across the board. That had a lot of input out there tonight to get in that spot."

Speaking on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas last week, Jones dispelled the possibility of Garrett getting fired in-season after some oddsmakers made him the second favorite head coach to be fired, behind Atlanta's Dan Quinn.

"Don't bet any money [on] that happening," Jones said. "You'll lose it."

Jerry Jones Contends Jason Garrett 'Absolutely Not' On Hot Seat

Oct 7, 2019 3:16 PM

Jerry Jones contends that Jason Garrett is "absolutely not" on the hot seat as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys.

"He's done a great job with this team," Jones said. "As you saw yesterday, he had this team playing hard when on a lot of teams that game could've gotten real ugly when it was (31-3)."

The Cowboys started the season 3-0 but have since lost at the New Orleans Saints and then at home against the Green Bay Packers.

Garrett's power within the Cowboys has seemingly shrunk over the years.

The Dallas Cowboys suffered their first loss of the season on Sunday night against the New Orleans Saints, but Dak Prescott hasn't lost any confidence.

The Cowboys' offense posted 257 yards and committed three turnovers.

"We've got a great team," Prescott said. "There's no confidence lost with this loss, I can promise you that. There's a lot of things we'll take from this that we'll learn from and become a better team because of it. That's the most important thing."

Sep 29, 2019 10:42 AM

Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys are not close to agreement on a contract extension at this time and a deal is not expected to be reached in the near future.

There is, however, motivation on both sides for a deal to eventually be reached.

There hasn't been a setback on the talks as they have not moved past the preliminary stages.

Prescott isn't considering moving off his demands, especially as he continues his strong start to 2019.

Dak Prescott, Cowboys Close To Extension

Sep 17, 2019 9:16 PM

The Dallas Cowboys are confident they are close to signing Dak Prescott to a contract extension.

“We’re already up there in rare air in terms of where the money is,” Stephen Jones said.

Jones was asked if he thinks Prescott will exceed Jared Goff's four-year, $134 million deal with the Los Angeles rams.

“I wouldn’t say it’s fair to say that,” Stephen Jones said. “Any time you get in that top-five area, you think a lot of somebody.”

It may not be “imminent” by Jerry Jones’ definition of “days,” but Prescott isn’t going anywhere.

“I know that they want to basically make this as thorough, I’ll use that word, or they don’t want to leave a stone unturned, and ‘they’ being, not Dak, his team, you must call it, which is his agents and the people that advise him,” Jerry Jones said Tuesday on his radio show on 105.3 The Fan. “No, it doesn’t surprise me [that it’s not done yet]. It doesn’t bother me a bit. I look at Dak long-term and this is a short-term thing. It obviously doesn’t affect him playing football not to have an extension. So, all of that is a good thing.”

Taco Charlton Wants Cowboys To Release Him

Sep 17, 2019 7:48 AM

After being inactive for the first two games, Taco Charlton has asked the Dallas Cowboys to release him.

The Cowboys have had trade discussions for Charlton, a first-round pick in 2017, but nothing that has gotten close, according to a source.

The defensive end is guaranteed his $1.376 million base salary this season and $458,000 of his base salary next season.

"We are not getting into that at all in any way," Jerry Jones said Sunday. "I know there is some discussion. We don't get into that."

Ezekiel Elliott Says He's Ready For Full Workload

Sep 12, 2019 9:08 AM

After carrying the ball just 13 times in Week 1, Ezekiel Elliott says he's ready for a full workload with the Dallas Cowboys.

Elliott missed all of summer training camp while holding out for a new contract.

"I think I'm ready now for a normal workload," he said. "Just depends on how (running backs coach Gary Brown) and (offensive coordinator) Kellen (Moore) and Coach (Jason) Garrett are feeling on Sunday. But if they ask me, I'll be able to go out there and do it."

The running back averaged 21.7 carries per game over his first three seasons.

Jerry Jones: Extension For Dak Prescott 'Imminent'

Sep 9, 2019 9:11 AM

The Dallas Cowboys opened the season with a 35-17 win over the New York Giants.

Dak Prescott began the season without a contract extension from the Cowboys.

"I'm turning the page and I'm worried about the Washington Redskins. I have people that handle that," Prescott said. "My focus is on this team. ... That's been out of my focus for the past week and I've told you guys that."

Jerry Jones was much more direct than Prescott, saying that a new deal for the quarterback is "imminent."
