Dallas Cowboys

Jerry Jones responds to Dez Bryant’s tweet about rejoining the Dallas Cowboys

It’s probably about time to give up on that Dez Bryant rejoining the Dallas Cowboys dream.

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said he’s in agreement with the organization’s stance to move on from the wide receiver.

Bryant tweeted on Tuesday that he’d rather “be with the Dallas Cowboys” when asked by a fan on Twitter which team he plans to sign with.

Jones was asked on his radio show on KRLD/105.3 The Fan Friday morning about Bryant’s comment.

“I know I’m the one to ask in response to that,” Jones said. “We’re friends, to say the least.I mirror feelings of that nature. It just seems like Dez is a Cowboy. But we have to look at what we’re all having to deal with and that is what’s in the best interest of the team and that’s a different story there.”

Jones said he wished Bryant the best but rejoining the Cowboys is not happening. Jones and Bryant have a close relationship, which included watching a Beyonce and Jay-Z concert together at AT&T Stadium last month.

“Trust me, if it were in our best interest, his and ours and the teams, then he would be on the field for the Cowboys,” Jones said. “I agree where we are and his status right now. I agree with that. Is that a clear answer?”

Clear enough.
