“I’m $100 million lighter as of this morning,” Jones said from New York, where he and his son, team executive vice president Stephen Jones, rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange. “Zeke has been arguably our best player,”

“We’re glad to get him booked in. We’re glad to have him on the team. He plays a position that has some pretty interesting dynamics to it because running backs are short-lived, although we had what I consider to be one of the top five greatest ones in Emmitt Smith. And Emmitt ran the ball for 13 years, so you don’t have to have a four- or five-year career to be a running back.

“On the other hand, Zeke allows us to create such problems for the defense that that he can open it up to our passing, open it up for Dak Prescott. Of course we’ve got to have some guys on defense to get those guys the ball. That’s what this is all about.”

Jerry sounds pretty coherent. 

It’s still early in the morning. . .
