We all saw the Ratliff situation unfold. Now there is Austin and Murray... both players who in all likelihood will not be back in Cowboys uniforms due to cap constraints. Read up on Albert Haynesworth and Deangelo Hall prior to his current stint w/ the Skins: players with immense ability and used self preservation tactics, attitude, and nagging "injuries" to keep themselves off the field and yet still good commodities on the FA market. Jones' extensions of players to keep money freed for top FA's is potentially the precise reason why both Murray and Austin are unwilling to return to the field. Someone else will pay for their abilities when Jerry can not, OR: they will not sell out for their team without a contract in potential negotiation. I doubt these situations apply only to the Cowboys, but I can't think of another team that has as much consternation getting players to return to the field.
