Jerry Jones: Ware’s Return Not Automatic

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 26, 2014 – 3:30 pm



Consider this a Texas anology or an Arkansas anology or a Texarkana anology if you want.

Either way it’s folksy and tremendous and could mean Redskins fans won’t have to worry about a man who picked up at least one sack in 10 of the 16 games he’s faced Washington.

ESPN sat down with Jerry Jones at the NFL Scouting Combine and asked the  owner/general manager of the rival Dallas Cowboys about the future of four-time All-Pro DeMarcus Ware.

The following is a response only an affluent oil man could deliver.

“You can’t have it all,” Jones told Suzy Colber and Chris Mortensen. “I’ll never forget when I first got involved with the Cowboys, I flew to my home, had some writers with me and got out and got in a 5-year old (Ford) Bronco. And they said this doesn’t make sense. You’re in a plane – your plane – and you’re landing, but you’re getting in a 5-year old Bronco. And I said, well, in order to have a plane you have to drive a 5-year old Bronco. You can’t have it all. And so we’ve got those kinds of decisions to make, which is a part of what makes it so exciting in the NFL.”

So in order for the Cowboys to maintain their roster (fuel up the G6), they have to drive a vintage sports utility vehicle (whatever cheaper alternative they could hypothetically find for Ware) instead of continuing their relationship with the pass-rusher.

The 31-year old Ware had elbow surgery last week. Last year he missed three games and was not invited to the Pro Bowl for the first time since his rookie season.

Previous to sharing his rich metaphor, Jones said he couldn’t fathom a Cowboys defense without Ware, so who knows where he really stands?

    I have been a Cowboy fan for years, and never have I seen them in the mess they are in now! Win or lose they are still my team, but Jerry jones need to retire to the box and hire a “Real Coach”.
