The Cowboys got a 3rd round pick back from SF so that may have been why. Flagler ended up with the Cardinals. He was probably afraid he would end up on Jimmy's asthma field. He lasted 2 years in Phoenix rushing for a grand total of 92 yards on 14 carries. Darrin Nelson was another back who didn't want to play for Jimmy he was one of the veteran players the Cowboys got in the Walker deal.
I hope both he and Flagler enjoyed sitting home out of football watching the Cowboys win their 3 SB's. Even had both players played for Jimmy they would have been cut by the time the Cowboys started winning championships.
