Felix Jones could end up re-signing with the Cowboys

Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com put together a very good argument as to  why the Cowboys could end up re-signing running back Felix Jones who’s scheduled to become a free agent next month.

One of the points Watkins made was that Jones will likely not get the big offer he’s looking for in free agency because of issues involving his durability.

Also the Cowboys have a lot of needs throughout the roster.  It would be smart to bring Jones back on a one-year deal and allow him to back up DeMarco Murray who’s had trouble staying healthy himself.

Jones only turns 26 in May, so he still has a few more good years left in him and he understands the Cowboys’ offense better than anyone they could bring in through the draft or free agency.

One last point that I just thought of is that the Cowboys don’t have the money to sign a top of  the line back up running back, since they’re currently $20 million over the cap.

    So Where’s the “Good” Argument?!?! Still waiting……… Essentially the Philosophy presented is to remain Status-Que? Fact: Felix Jones reported to camp Last Year unable to pass the Physical tests, (over-weight and out of shape). He’s not going to work any harder because he thinks (likely knows) taht the Cowboys aren’t going to Deal him (cut nor Trade) and viewing tP.T. Barnums past record,,, I wouldn’t be surprised if Felix gets an extension with a 20 million dollar signing bonus!! The only true fact of the article above is: “One of the points Watkins made was that Jones will likely not get the big offer he’s looking for in free agency because of issues involving his durability.”. So, the Cowboys should keep him because NOBODY Else wants him?!? Ohhhhh, that’s right, he does have the last name “Jones”!.. BTW, is that You Jason? Did you right the article above, or is it Callahan? I’m starting to have trouble really knowing for sure who’s calling anything down in Dallas these days since Jerry’s turned the reigns over to Opie (wink-wink)!!!
