This is pretty much old news. Jimmy has stated this several times in the past. In fact just a couple of years ago, he was on Dan Patrick's show and stated the same thing. That he had full contractual control over all personnel decisions while he was in Dallas. That included players as well as coaches. It's why I laugh when the Jerry supporters try to pretend that the Cowboys were successful with Jerry as a GM back in the 90s. He may have carried the GM title, but in those days he was nothing more than a figurehead. Akin to the Queen of England. He had a fancy title but very little power to go with it.
