Jerry Jones didn't talk to anyone on the Cowboys before trading for Trey Lance

Life is great when you’re Jerry Jones. He’s the owner and basic supervisor of the Dallas Cowboys, the most important American football franchise on Earth. Which suggests he gets to do whatever he desires with that group without asking anybody else for approval — like trading for previous San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance recently.

During his weekly radio interview on 105.3 The Fan, Jones was inquired about the Lance trade, and what the procedure was to decide to obtain him, given that head coach Mike McCarthy and beginning QB Dak Prescott apparently had not been sought advice from prior to the trade. Jones didn’t point out anybody by name, however stated he didn’t seek advice from anybody due to the fact that he didn’t need to. He had all the info he required on Lance and everybody was currently on the very same page.

“The way we have it structured gets a lot of criticism,” Jones stated. “But with the way I’m involved and have all the on-going information, I didn’t have to fool around. I got it done. I didn’t have to send it around. I can make that trade in five minutes.”

“I had everything at my fingertips. I didn’t have to visit with anyone as to what we thought of Trey Lance, because I knew it already. It’s a continual thing. In our business you have to be prepared to catch an opportunity. You can’t wait to have a committee meeting over something like that, or else the train’s gone.”

It’s clear that Jones has the last say-so on whatever, however he did state that he’s not the only voice. He does not make his choices in a vacuum and does seek advice from others (like his child, Cowboys CEO and director of gamer advancement Stephen Jones), however coaches and gamers aren’t normally part of that choice making procedure.

Jones certainly captured the Trey Lance train prior to it left the station. But should he have paid a lot for a ticket? Jones sent out a fourth-round choice to San Francisco in exchange for Lance, which appears like a lot for a person who has actually played in 8 overall NFL video games and had actually simply been called third-string quarterback behind Brock Purdy and Sam Darnold.

But Lance is who Jones desired, and he was positive throughout the interview that he made the ideal choice based upon all the info he had. Now all Jones can do is kick back and see if the group he built — Lance consisted of — can make it all the method to the Super Bowl.
