Ah, the light may be starting to come on for some, FINALLY. A few who actually pay attention have been trying to tell everyone that its not, and hasnt always been Jerry. Just because Jerry TALKS about stuff with the team DOES NOT mean that he dictated what would happen. http://www.bloggingtheboys.com/2014...lton-free-agent-signing-welcome-to-the-future Jon Machota @jonmachota Follow Newest Dallas Cowboys DT Henry Melton on with @BenRogers and @SkinWade says Jerry Jones was not part of the contract negotiations.

There have been a lot of things that seemed to contradict it at times. Who was behind the hiring and firing of assistant coaches was never very clear. The still evolving role of the various people involved in calling the offensive plans is even more enigmatic, although at first blush it would look like something that was being dictated to the head coach by the owner. And Jerry Jones was never shy about declaring that the buck clearly stopped with him. But now, we have a free agent signing that was seen widely as the make or break move by the Cowboys - and Melton clearly and plainly states that Jerry Jones was nowhere to be seen. For years, fans and critics of the Cowboys alike have been asking, begging, and screaming for Jerry Jones to give up his general manager duties. It may have happened, and almost no one realized it had actually taken place.
