Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM] Tuesday morning that the Colin Kaepernick workout wasn’t about football and that it was more a circus.
The NFL scheduled a workout for Kaepernick last Saturday in the Atlanta area. The venue of the workout changed and there were reports from both sides, NFL and Kaepernick’s, about the language in a workout waiver and whether it should have been filmed for the media. The Cowboys did not attend the workout.
“That situation from the get-go probably had a lot more, that wasn’t about football involved in it,” Jones said, “and consequently we got the results of that dynamic.”
Jerry Jones says Cowboys need more turnovers: The Cowboys have struggled with creating turnovers this season. They have just four interceptions and eight forced fumbles and are minus one in the takeaway battle. Sunday they face the Patriots, who are plus 18 in takeaways with a league-leading 19 interceptions along with eight forced fumbles. Jerry Jones would like to see more turnovers from his group especially in a game against the Patriots.
“I would sum it up by turnovers,” Jones said. “We need to have gotten more turnovers and we would be more satisfied by our defense. The turnover thing is where we’re lacking the most.”
After a two-game stretch where the Cowboys created seven turnovers, there were none created the last two games.
Briefly: The Cowboys worked out center Marcus Henry and tackle Storm Norton on Tuesday. Henry is expected to join the practice squad, multiple sources said and it won’t be finalized until Wednesday morning. … CB Anthony Brown underwent season-ending surgery Tuesday for a torn triceps.
