Cowboys not deterred by Joey Bosa character issues
The Dallas Cowboys are not going to let whatever potential character issues there are surrounding Joey Bosa prevent them from drafting the Ohio State defender.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones spoke with the media on Monday and said any character concerns about Bosa do not bother him.
“His character issue would not be a factor in us drafting him,” Jones said Monday via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Cowboys defensive ends Randy Gregory and DeMarcus Lawrence are suspended the first four games of the season, so the team has a need at defensive end. That’s part of what makes Bosa a good fit for the Cowboys, who are drafting No. 4 overall.
Bosa was suspended for Ohio State’s season opener. Some report it was for testing positive for marijuana.
Even if the Cowboys are undeterred about any character issues for Bosa, the whole matter may be immaterial; a previous report said the team was not planning to draft Bosa.
