Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones expressed confidence in the team's overall run game Thursday, May 14. "You say the entire running game, and that would be including our tight ends, including our fullback – the entire game – we're better," Jones said. The Cowboys have yet to determine roles for their running backs. As it stands, RB Darren McFadden is at the top of the depth chart, with RBs Joseph Randle, Lance Dunbar and Ryan Williams in the mix.
Fantasy Tip: With McFadden's extensive injury history he'll represent too much uncertainty come draft time. If Joseph Randle remains buried on the depth chart, he'll make for an excellent source of value after he rushed for 6.7 yards per carry on 51 attempts last season.

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 12:47:58 -0700
Dallas Cowboys general manager Jerry Jones said a running back isn't a necessity in this year's draft.
Fantasy Tip: Darren McFadden figures to be the backfield starter as of now as it seems the Cowboys won't be pursuing Adrian Peterson. McFadden would be one of the least reliable starting running backs in the league and should be considered no more than a RB2 at best.

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray is getting support from QB Tony Romo to stay with the team long term. Romo said he is consistently talking to owner Jerry Jones about bringing him back in 2015.
Fantasy Tip: Murray may be the odd man out if the team chooses to re-sign or franchise tag Dez Bryant this offseason. If Murray does indeed land somewhere else, his fantasy value could dip running behind a different offensive line.

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett got an endorsement from owner Jerry Jones. Jones said the team will extend the contract of their head coach when the time is right. "I just didn't do it and didn't want to — that is, extend the contract," Jones said. "Jason's been coaching under the same contract actually for about seven years. I've got tremendous confidence in Jason Garrett's growth and how he has evolved as head coach. And so that I felt when the time is right — I didn't think it was right to start the season. And so I felt when the time is right we'll sit down and extend his contract."

Thu, 06 Nov 2014 10:23:09 -0800
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo could play for another five years, according to owner Jerry Jones. "I think it's realistic for him to play five more years," Jones said. "I'm aware of his back. Only God knows what is in store for his back. I've seen backs out there that you wouldn't believe how they look on the MRIs and how they look on X-rays.
"If you're concerned about his future, then look at his age, and you might say, boy, you need to be thinking about a time when he doesn't play. I don't look at it much differently than that with his back, because there have been three very different types of injuries that have caused him to miss games with his back."
Fantasy Tip: Obviously the big question with Romo will be his back moving forward, but it may be optimistic to think that Romo would be able to last that long with the injury history he has had.

Dallas Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne received praise from owner Jerry Jones for having his heart in the right place. "He's in the right place with his heart," Jones said. "He's an outstanding talent, outstanding athlete. Has got a lot of work to do and has missed the evolving that you'd expect a young player in the NFL to have because of various injuries, various reasons.
"We think, I think, that if he can get in the groove, get his repetition, get in the same groove he was in in the early part of our two-a-days out in California, then I think he can become the player that we expect him to be."
Tue, 23 Sep 2014 10:15:39 -0700
Dallas Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne has not lived up to expectations since being drafted with the sixth overall draft pick in 2012, according to general manager Jerry Jones. "Is he what we had hoped for at this point when we drafted him with the sixth overall pick, giving up the [second-round] pick to go up to the sixth pick to get him? No," Jones said. "But he's going to be a good player."
Fri, 19 Sep 2014 10:30:35 -0700
Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain (groin) may not play in Week 3, according to general manager Jerry Jones. "Well, you'll miss him," Jones said. "On the other hand, I think you can expect him probably not to play, but he won't tell you that. We're not sure when he had this injury – he might have had it early in the game. If you listen to him, he wants to play and thinks he might play, but we have him as doubtful, of course."

The Cowboys finishes last in the league in yards allowed last season. "I can say it this year, we are better right now," Jones said. "And I think better on the field. We're certainly better on paper than we were at the end of the season last year. Not on paper at the beginning of the season last year, but on paper right now relative to how we ended up last year."
Sat, 07 Jun 2014 07:06:04 -0700
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones admits it was tough to pass on QB Johnny Manziel in the NFL Draft. "Well, it was," Jones said. "Yes, it was. First of all, I couldn't believe he had fallen there. And secondly, we had spent a lot of time, I'd spent a lot of time. He's the kind of player that can be that kind of difference-maker. There's no doubt in my mind that he'll be a successful player. We have in Romo what I consider to be the better quarterback. But there's also the future, there's also insurance if you don't have him. If anybody could have adjusted to Manziel's style, we could have because we're a lot like that with Romo."

"We didn't bring [Scott] Linehan in here to rebuild."

Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Monday, Feb. 24, that DE DeMarcus Ware is not guaranteed to return to the team for the 2014 season. Ware will have a salary cap charge of $16 million.
"There's no question when you are where we are on the cap, even though we've had some new cap space added, and you have a defensive player that's your highest paid defensive player, and he hasn't been on the field much the last two years, that has to be considered," Jones said. "You can't have it all."
Sun, 23 Feb 2014 15:53:49 -0800

"I have said the last couple of games I don't want to talk about it because it looks like, because someone else needs an answer, it is a point of consideration and I've said it earlier.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones supports QB Tony Romo's decision making that led to the interceptions in the team's Week 15 game. "I was for the aggressiveness we showed ... and it can apply to many parts of the game," Jones said.

Aggressiveness with Romo can mean not throw the ball, but buy more time, which increases the chances of having a bad play."

"He's very close with his family," Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said. "Very close in Louisiana and suddenly his father passed away at a relatively young age. He was not what I wold call an older man. Having said that, it tore his world up so he immediately left to be with his family. We knew he wasn't going to play this week and that's besides the point. He wanted to be with his family and we're giving him all of the time that he needs there or wants." KFFL sends its condolences.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he won't shake up the coaching staff during the team's bye week in Week 11. Jones said defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin won't be fired and head coach Jason Garrett won't take the play-calling duties from offensive coordinator Bill Callahan. The Cowboys were held to 193 yards of total offense in their Week 10 loss to the New Orleans Saints. The team's defense ranks last in the league with an average of 439.8 yards per game. Jones believes the team needs to play more man coverage on defense. "You need to probably man up more in the secondary than we've been doing, rather than relying on zone," Jones said. "Because if we can't get pressure and we're relying on the traditional zone as you might mentally picture it, then that's a recipe for what happened to us the other night."
Sat, 26 Oct 2013 08:36:44 -0700
Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said he is more concerned about the team defending Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush Week 8 than he is defending WR Calvin Johnson.

That seems defensively to be a rough area for us," Jones said.
Fri, 16 Aug 2013 10:08:47 -0700
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he is not concerned with CB Morris Claiborne (knee) missing two games with a knee issue.

"We know the kinds of things he's been dealing with.
"He's every bit the player we thought he was. He's every bit the athlete we thought he was."

Updating a previous item, Dallas Cowboys DE Tyrone Crawford (Achilles) was carted off the field Sunday, July 21, during the Cowboys' first practice of training camp. He was participating in slalom drills against tackling dummies when he fell to the ground and yelled in pain. He held his left ankle and lay on his back, pounding the ground in anger. "Achilles!" he told the trainers. "I can't --- believe this!" The Cowboys may now be forced to shore up the depth in the defensive line, an area owner Jerry Jones said in the offsesaon that he liked.
