Will Jerry Give Garrett Final Say? Deion Says “No”

In announcing Jason Garrett as the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys last week, owner and general manager Jerry Jones told reporters that Garrett would have final say over all matters of personnel. Most observers around town, of course, will believe it when they see it.

This includes Deion Sanders, who, in a recent appearance on the “Ben & Skin Show” on ESPN Radio, openly doubted the likelihood of this ever happening to any degree.

“No,” Sanders said, per the Dallas Morning News. “Not once so ever. First of all, ladies and gentlemen and the children listening who should be in school right now, let's get this straight: I spend hundreds, hundreds, hundreds of millions, my franchise is worth billions, and you're going to think that I'm going to allow someone else to call shots in my kitchen? Have you lost your mind?”

Echoing the sentiments of many, Sanders continued that Jones’ assertion that he’d give Garrett such power was merely a media relations nicety, the sort of endeavor that Jones has perfected in his time as the owner of the most visible football team on the planet.

“Jerry plays great games,” he said. “Jerry has more games than Toys R Us.”
