Jerry Jones Speaks On Cowboys Not Having ‘Enough Money To Go Around’
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones stated on Tuesday that he believes contract extensions for quarterback Dak Prescott and wide receiver Amari Cooper are imminent, but he also stated the team doesn’t exactly have the unlimited financial resources available after giving mega deals to running back Ezekiel Elliott and linebacker Jaylon Smith.
Jones made his comments during his weekly appearance on 105.3 The Fan radio in Dallas following the Cowboys’ Week 1 victory over the New York Giants.
On Prescott: “As I’ve said so many times, nothing happens until both parties decide…it’s time to go. I think we are fast approaching an agreement, but that’s relative…to where we’ve been…that might just be my opinion, and not Dak’s opinion.”
On Cooper: “In the same sense, yes [it’s imminent].”
On the team’s cap space: “It’s pretty obvious we’ve got a lot of talent on this team. We don’t have enough money to go around.”
The Cowboys were surgical during their blowout victory over the Giants, with Elliott racking up 53 yards and a touchdown on 13 rushing attempts and Dak Prescott completing 25 of his 32 throws for 405 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions.
