Jerry Jones Has Harsh Words For Colin Kaepernick Workout
Jerry Jones has harsh words for Colin Kaepernick’s recent workout in a new interview.
Kaepernick, 32, held his much-hyped workout this past Saturday.
Originally the workout was supposed to be a league-led event that would showcase to 20+ NFL teams what Kaepernick was still capable of.
Mid-Saturday, Kaepernick decided to flip the script on the league with which he has been at war with for the past three years and move the locale 60 miles from the original destination.
Only seven teams followed him to the new location.
The takeaways from the workout were pretty much what everyone expected: he has enough talent to be a backup in the NFL, probably, but not a starter.
It was exactly what the perception of Kaepernick had been heading into the whole ordeal, so nothing changed.
On Tuesday, Jones was asked during an interview if he felt like the workout had turned into a “circus.”
The Dallas Cowboys owner did not hold back.
“I think so,” Jones replied, before adding, “We of course, aren’t in the quarterback business.”
He then went on to add: “We’re in the business of anytime, anywhere looking for talent — whether we need it now or whether we need it in the future.”
Finally, Jones ended his thoughts on the matter with a strong message.
“So, the way these things work, you had that evaluation for you whether you’re there or you’re not.
“You have that evaluation. And, I think it’s unfortunate that you can’t just zero in on the business at hand, and that is evaluating a player that might or might not help you win a football game or move the chains within a football game.”
Based on Jones’ comments, it is safe to assume that Kaepernick will not be backing Dak Prescott up any time soon.
