Cowboys’ Jerry Jones reacts to possibility of signing Antonio Brown
The Dallas Cowboys are struggling to get back on track as they’ve now lost three in a row after starting out 3-0. Sure, some fans may tell the team to look for reinforcements for their offense. However, Jerry Jones has no interest in adding Antonio Brown to the roster.
Jones was asked if he will consider adding the talented but controversial wide receiver to his team. Given the team’s inconsistencies after six weeks of football, the team is considering strengthening its options at wide receiver.
Pro Football Talk’s Charean Williams noted that in a recent interview with 105.3 The Fan, Jones sounded uninterested in signing the former Pittsburgh Steeler, Oakland Raiders, and New England Patriot.
“I like our depth. We’ve got guys that we haven’t seen, 81 [Jon’Vea Johnson, who is on injured reserve]. We’ve got some players out there that I think give us as good a depth at receiver that we have on the squad — let me real clear about that — as I’ve seen us have in years. So, I’m not speaking to Antonio. I’m not speaking to anybody, but I believe we would go with the depth we have.”
It’s a waste that the team is uninterested in getting Brown in Cowboys colors. After all, he finished last season with 1,297 catching yards and a league-high 15 touchdowns. He’s so good that Hall of Fame receiver Michael Irwin tried to convince the Cowboys to get him on their team.
However, Brown is no stranger to controversy. He’s currently battling on the courts, defending himself against sexual harassment suits and has filed grievances against the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots for not paying him his dues.
While Brown still wants to play in the NFL, it remains to be seen if there’s a franchise who’s desperate enough to ignore his red flags and get him for his talent.
