Stephen Jones not trading Vets for Adrian Peterson, or so he says..


Dallas Cowboys COO Stephen Jones was on 105.3 The Fan Tuesday morning and of course he was asked about the opportunity to snag Adrian Peterson.  With the draft looming so close the old saying certainly goes into place , if a GM’s lips ( Or VP in this case..)are moving this time of year he is likely lying. I believe him in this case, I don’t see the Cowboys front office that has been so careful with off-season moves doing anything dramatic to snag Adrian Peterson , as much as the fans would love to see him with the star on his helmet.

“I don’t see that happening,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM]. “I think draft picks are so important for us.

That’s where your value is in this salary cap era. I see us using all of our picks and hopefully do it in a good, wise way. Hopefully when the draft is all said and done, we’ll have really improved our football team.

“I don’t see us using any picks to trade for veteran ball players.” ( Per Dallas Morning News )

So, no need to fret over Scandrick plus a pick for Adrian Cowboys Nation.

The Cowboys clearly want and need to draft a running back, they have had six visit Valley Ranch this off-season among about 20+ defensive players.  If you want to know where the Cowboys see major needs, look at the visits in the last month or so.  Who will be there at 27 for the Cowboys? They clearly need to replace the rushing leader in Murray but the needs in the back field are obvious and much-needed.

The Dallas Cowboys need an A+ draft, typically it takes time for a player to really make an impact with a team, hence some of the moves already made this off-season.  When it comes down to it, it’s time to really trust the front office now that Jerry doesn’t appear to be controlling 100% of the decisions,  if he wants Peterson he is being out weighed by his officers.

I think it is about time to finally put the Adrian Peterson to Dallas rumors to bed and move on to our major needs in the draft. Plenty of running back talent that could be seen in the second round or maybe later, as well as some good defensive units.

Is Mike Jenkins attending OTAs?


ESPN.Com

The Dallas Cowboys organized team activities starts Tuesday, May 22.  But, the question around Valley Ranch is if cornerback Mike Jenkins will attend the Cowboys’ OTA this week. 

Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star Telegram reports Jenkins has been rehabbing from right shoulder surgery at his home in Florida, having avoided the team’s off-season workouts at Valley Ranch. The front office has questioned Jenkins’ absence, saying he needs to return to work.

Jenkins, who enters the final year of his contract, became trade bait after the Cowboys signed free agent Brandon Carr and drafted LSU’s Morris Claiborne. But owner Jerry Jones said recently that Jenkins is a “vital part” of the team’s 2012 plans.

End of Mike Jenkins?


 

The latest rumor from Valley Ranch is the Dallas Cowboys are looking to trade 4 year pro cornerback Mike Jenkins so the Cowboys can move back into the second round.

Last year Jenkins played through a lot of injuries but with the Cowboys trading up to select Morris Claiborne with the No. 6 pick of last night’s draft it seems Jenkins’ days in Arlington are numbered.
