Jerry Jones had great reason for avoiding media last week

Jerry Jones
Jerry Jones is usually the first person to address the media following Dallas Cowboys games, but that was not the case last weekend.

Jones did not address the media like usual after the team lost 20-17 to the Washington Redskins on the road. On Friday, the Cowboys owner revealed why that was the case.

Jones said on his weekly radio show on 105.3 The Fan that the team was discussing the Amari Cooper trade after the loss. He said he had to avoid the media because everybody knows he can’t keep a secret.

Dallas ended up acquiring Cooper in a trade with the Oakland Raiders on Monday, a day after their loss. They paid a hefty price too, giving up a first-round pick. It was a desperate move by a desperate team. They will have plenty of weaknesses to address after the season, and now they won’t have a first-round pick to help them regroup.

Perhaps Jones should have talked with the media about his team’s plans so that they could have talked him out of it.
