After Hip Surgery, Jerry Jones Isn't Planning on Slowing Down

2015 will be Jerry Jones' 26th season as owner of the Dallas Cowboys

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had to miss Charles Haley’s induction to the Pro Football Hall of Fame over the weekend as he continues to recover from July hip surgery, but as a general rule, the ultra-involved, 72-year-old owner told 1310-AM The Ticket’s Norm Hitzges recently that he’s not planning on slowing down anytime soon.

I’m going to keep going,” Jones said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I don’t have any timetable at all. I’m not sitting here with these new hips on just to try to wobble into the garage and park this thing for the next 20 years.

“These things are built for the freeway. They’re built for some real road action. They’ve got a lot of dances left in them. I’m sure having them programmed with a good musical aspect to them. I think there’s going to be a lot going on in my life. So, no, I’m not looking at slowing down any time soon.”

Not that his declaration needed any backing up, but those present at Cowboys camp in Oxnard have mentioned that Jones seems as excited and energetic this year as ever in this, his 26th year as owner of the Cowboys.
