Cowboys owner Jerry Jones didn’t hold back on his goals for 2015 and for years to come during a jubilant phone to call to receiver Dez Bryant on the signing of a five-year, $70 million contract extension Wednesday.
Jones aspires to win “five Super Bowls in a row”, per video footage of the phone call released by the Dallas Cowboys on their website Thursday.
“I just want to hug your neck. I’m so proud ... congratulations,” said Jones, who was still in New York, where he went to negotiate the deal, while Bryant was at the team’s Valley Ranch headquarters. “Let’s just win five Super Bowls in a row, how about it?”
An equally excited Bryant replied in kind: “Yes sir, we are. I’m very excited. I can’t wait. I think this is the year. We got it.”
The Cowboys have won just two playoffs games since 1997 and have not been to the Super Bowl since 1995.
