Jerry Jones

La’El Collins Eats (more) Cap Pie

Cowboys Nation holds their collective breath as La’El Collins eats some available cap pie and Jerry Jones lets all unsigned players know that after both Jaylon Smith and now Collins got their deals done the size of the pie just shrank some more.

As Jerry is wont to do he used the media to deliver a message to fans, agents and players alike. The pie is only so big and the next player to come to the table is the next one served.

On 105.3 The Fan Jerry spoke in open reference to Ezekiel RB Elliott, QB Dak Prescott, and WR Amari Cooper when he stated:

” There’s no question the pie is getting smaller.” – Jerry Jones on 105.3 The Fan via Michael Gehlken Dallas Morning News

The simple statement is many things. It’s basic match. It’s a visualization and a warning. It is also a clear shot across the bow that Jerry is many things, but a businessman first and foremost.

It’s Jerry’s job to get the most talent he can get signed for the cap space he has available. It’s the agent’s job to get the most money they can for their client. There is a place the two can co-exist. There is also plenty of space for them to diverge with the final remedy involving another team.

Reportedly Elliott and the Cowboys are closing in on a 6  years extension in the $90 million range.  When the ink hits the paper it’s done. Till then it’s pie-in-the-sky instead of on the plate.
