Cowboys owner Jerry Jones admits he ‘can’t keep a secret’ from the media
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is always in the media, but he recently had to remove himself from the spotlight because of one weakness he has. After his team’s last loss to the Washington Redskins, Jones skipped his postgame interviews, which is rare for him. The Cowboys had a major move planned to improve their team, and frankly, Jones didn’t think he could keep their focus on acquiring Amari Cooper to himself.
“From the standpoint of visiting with the media, frankly, I had this trade on my mind,” Jones told 105.3 The Fan on Friday. “I had several things on my mind, and I didn’t want to air it all out about it. And, so, the best way not to — you know, I can’t keep a secret. And, so, the bottom line is I thought it best just to move on.”
Now that the Cooper deal has been completed, Jerry Jones will probably get back to being vocal again. The team has been in need of a dynamic top receiver like Cooper, who was wasting away in Oakland. The 3-4 Cowboys are tied for second in the NFC East, and they’re hoping their new weapon can take them over the top.
Cooper is has been learning his new system’s offense while getting over a concussion. Luckily for him, the Cowboys had a bye week when his trade was finalized, so he got some extra time to settle in. A new environment might give him the change of pace he needs to get back to Pro Bowl form.
