Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones made the decision to trade wide receiver Amari Cooper last March. Cooper was traded to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for fifth- and sixth-round draft picks.

In the Cowboys’ first two games of the 2022 NFL season, Cooper’s absence was notable.

By making an appearance on 105.3 The Fan, Jerry Jones spoke about the trade and the reasoning behind it. He said Cooper’s contract was the main reason for the talented wide receiver’s trade.

He went on to say that Cooper is a very good player and what he does on the field is not the reasoning behind his trade.

“The problem with Amari Cooper was how much we paid him and what we could do with that money. Totally. Amari Cooper is a very good player. Best player.”

Jerry Jones then mentioned wanting a better o/pass line rush, “You can’t have it all.”

If Amari Cooper had played with the Cowboys this season, they should have paid him $20 million. Since Jones made the trade, they’ve only taken a $6 million hit in the dead salary cap space.

The Browns then restructured Cooper’s salary to make room for their own salary cap space. It’s something the Cowboys could have done too. But it appears Jones didn’t want the catcher’s salary on the books for years to come.

Jones also said that by freeing up space on the salary cap, he was able to make improvements to two key roster items. The offensive line and pass rush are where the Cowboys need to spend the most money going forward.

In terms of adding to the other parts of the roster while having a very talented wide receiver, Jones simply said he couldn’t have it all.

“You can’t have it all.”

Jerry Jones said he wanted a QB contest

Jerry Jones has been adamant that Dak Prescott is the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys. He even signed the quarterback to a four-year deal worth $160 million last year, proving he’s sticking with it.

After Prescott suffered a thumb injury in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, backup quarterback Cooper Rush took over the starting role. Rush was able to lead the Cowboys to a victory over the Cincinnati Bengals last Sunday.

While everyone believed Rush would return as backup quarterback once Prescott returned in a few weeks, Jerry Jones wasn’t definitive. According to Jon Machota, the Dallas Cowboys team owner would welcome quarterback competition.

He said if Cooper Rush was able to keep the Cowboys in contention and win, he would consider it.

“Of course I would. Of course that means we won. If he comes in and plays as well as Prescott, if Rush has played well in the next few games to come, I would walk to New York to get it.”

This news clearly shocked everyone as Rush is only playing because Prescott is injured. Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said Friday there was no competition and Dak Prescott would remain the starter when he returns.

“Obviously to everyone in our locker room and everyone in the building, Jerry included, Dak is our quarterback.”

Jerry Jones has been known to shake things up in the past, but perhaps insinuating quarterback competition may have gone a bit too far this time.
