“Of course, he’s very sad and you only have one of those,” Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. “But he was getting the kind of support you would think. He’s loved in that locker room, and by the coaches as well. And, so, there was a lot of sensitivity and love being expressed to him.
“I’ll say this: If he wanted to be at some place in his life, I bet it would be right in the middle of that locker room to be dealing with that.”
