TO was in serious decline and was questioning Romo, Garrett and Witten. He had become a distraction and his declining skills could not override the cancer he was in the locker room any longer.
After we sent him packing he didn't last long in Cincinnati before they turfed him.
He tried a comeback after ACL surgery but looked like a UDFA rookie on the field with hands of stone. The FO made the right decision not to bring him back for another year. Jerry made the mistake of extending his original 3-year deal right before the season when he fell apart by the seams. The confidence gained from that contract let him get comfortable and let his true nature shine through.
I don't wish ill will on anyone. But I think it is deserving that he won't have an easy retirement with the riches he earned during his playing days and will have to try to make a living. I look forward to seeing him get fired a few more times before he is finally shoved out of the limelight.
