Cowboys News: Did Jerry Jones Say The Cowboys Are Focused On Defensive End & Wide Receiver?
Cowboys News: Did Jerry Jones Say The Cowboys Are Focused On Defensive End & Wide Receiver? But in assessing their priorities for the draft and free agency, the Cowboys see two positions as necessities, per a source. It’s a war daddy pass rusher, a position owner Jerry Jones has talked about all off-season, and wide receiver. The second is a surprise considering the offense is well stocked — Williams was the fourth-leading receiver in 2016 — and the obvious void the Cowboys have in the secondary.
“I am not going to say which ones, because it’s competitive,” Jones said “But there are two spots we get wounded if we don’t have at least that position back with that caliber of player. There are two spots, whether by that player or one of his quality. We need to replace those positions, that talent level on the roster. ”
Beyond that then we are not decimated if we don’t have that individual player. We will have somebody playing the position. But out of that whole makeup and list, there are two we have to really address. We can’t come up empty. We have somebody meaningful there. They are part of our core strategy.”
