Over the past month, Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones has had his eye out for free agent WR Odell Beckham Jr. While they’ve made splashes this year of greatness, they’re far too inconsistent to either be considered a Super Bowl contender. However, Jerry Jones may be stuck at the moment as they pumbled the Minnesota Vikings this past weekend, 40-3.
“There’s not a perfect game,” the owner said during his weekly radio appearance on 105.3 The Fan. “But that’s the best I’ve seen as far as being a complete game since I’ve been a part of the Cowboys.”
As stated prior, while they’re not a true contender. At the moment, the inquiry of Beckham may push them over the edge to becoming legitimate in the NFC. Jones is on record not only advocating but essentially agreeing to have Beckham come on the team and produce immediately. In fact, Tuesday morning, Jones expressed he intends on signing Beckham to be full-fledged and his opinion on improving a team that he believes can win now.
“If you can improve this team right now and it’s within reason, you should do it.”

The NFC East is a very tight race, with the Cowboys trailing the Philadelphia Eagles by two games. If they’re not able to catch the Eagles, they are still in good shape as they face some of the worst teams in football to close out the season. While dominating the Vikings Jones envisions that Cowboys being a force to be reckoned with.
“Because of Deion (Sanders) and Michael (Irvin) and many other players long after they’ve left the football field, there’s credibility from working with those guys and keeping great relationships,” Jones said. “It’s an advantage when you’re sitting down to meet with Herschel (Walker) or these high-profile guys because all they have to do is pick up the phone and ask the others what happens after they quit playing.”
