The Dallas Cowboys were very close to taking Johnny Football according to Jerry Jones. A matter of fact it sounds like they were contemplating between Zach Martin and JF.
“I want you to know that almost as I was handing in the card, it was that close to putting that Manziel card in. It was that close,” Jones told NFL Media’s Rich Eisen and Michael Irvin from Cowboys camp in Oxnard, California.
“I looked over to my son, Stephen, our chief executive officer, and I said ‘I took the right pick.’ … He was the top player by three players on our board at the time that we were sitting there looking at him.”
I thibk over time the Cowboys did the right thing. You win in the trenches.
