"You and I both know that the one [player] you're asking about all the time, if I gave you the answer that you want to hear, then you would have already had it," Jones said. "So the fact you don't have it ought to tell you something."As Tim Colishaw of the Dallas Morning News points out, should you expect Jones and the Cowboys to take a $9.6 million salary-cap hit to part ways with his best WR?
While hindsight is 20-20 (and I didn't think it was a good idea at the time), Jones shouldn't have given T.O. a 3-year contract extension last off-season. If he hadn't, T.O.'s contract would have been up. At least, the franchise would be making their decision solely based on whether or not T.O. is a good fit.
But let's face it - T.O.'s going to be back in '09.
