Look: Jerry Jones buys enormous $250 million yacht

Category : Cowboys , NFL , Take a Look

Anyone that has been to AT&T Stadium knows that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones does everything big. The team’s home venue resembles more of a nightclub than a stadium, as Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll once said.
Not only that, Jones even boasts next-level leisure options, as we recently learned. TMZ Sports obtained a photo of his new superyacht — which, by the way, cost $250 million.
It’s called “Bravo Eugenia,” is 357 feet long (!), has two helipads and a gym on board. Check out the photo of the yacht — which looks more like a military assault boat than anything else.

Yes, that’s real.

Amari Cooper is proving he’s one of the NFL’s elite receivers

Category : Cowboys , NFL

It doesn’t happen often, but Jerry Jones has officially won the trade with Jon Gruden and the Oakland Raiders. Many, including myself, were skeptical about giving up a first-round pick for fourth-year receiver Amari Cooper. Through six games with the Dallas Cowboys, that debate has been put to rest.
Cooper has been sensational since coming to Dallas, and that’s being modest. In six weeks, the former Crimson Tide receiver has 40 receptions for 642 yards and six touchdowns. He has single-handedly elevated the Cowboys offense to levels they had not seen in 2018.
Even more important than Cooper’s individual statistics is the team’s play. Dallas has gone 5-1 since his acquisition, including winning its last five.
Cooper has finally given the Cowboys a true No. 1 option on the outside they had been missing the first half of the season. The absence of Dez Bryant and Jason Witten were felt significantly as the Cowboys struggled to find consistency in the passing game early on.
Allen Hurns was supposed to be one of the guys helping fill that void, but he’s barely contributed at all this year. Rookie Michael Gallup has shown signs of promise, but that’s not exactly what you’re looking for in terms of your top receiving target.
Cooper has filled that role completely and exceeded just about everyone’s expectations. Beyond having tremendous stats, Coop has clearly been the most important offensive player on the field behind running back Ezekiel Elliott. He makes timely catches on third downs and when the offense seems to be stagnant, he’s the guy Dak Prescott and Scott Linehan use to gain some breathing room.

He’s also shown off an explosive-play ability Dallas hasn’t seen since Bryant was in his prime. Cooper has taken a number of “regular” grabs and used his impressive acceleration to make several game-changing plays.
Against Washington on Thanksgiving, Cooper took two shorter passes all the way for touchdowns. Both were massive plays for the offense and created separation on the scoreboard in a tight game.
The second score was a crazy 90-yard sprint from the 24-year-old. With just two minutes remaining in the third quarter, Cooper caught a Prescott pass around Dallas’ 33-yard-line. With three defenders surrounding him, Cooper was able to push away from one, put his foot in the ground to change direction, and dashed away from all three on his way to another touchdown.
Results were similar against Philadelphia. Despite the offense playing below par for the majority of the game, Cooper helped the team explode in the fourth quarter and overtime. He finished with 217 yards and three scores including a 75-yarder and the game clincher.
With Cooper producing like this, the rest of the team doesn’t need to do as much on a weekly basis. Gallup has developed into a solid No. 2 and Cole Beasley has held his own as the slot option. With Elliott still being the focal point of attention, this receiving corps can actually have a real impact. The Cowboys can thank Mr. Cooper and Jerry Jones for that.

Dallas Cowboys must trade for Deone Bucannon or Haason Reddick

Category : Cowboys , NFL

The window for the Dallas Cowboys is growing smaller by the year, with Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott still on rookie contracts, and it’s time for Jerry Jones and Co. to make a trade to shake things up.
It’s no secret that the team is rebuilding its receiving corps, and the passing game just isn’t there right now. The team lacks a No. 1 receiver, and right now, a lot of pressure is on Ezekiel Elliott. The Cowboys are using their run game to control the clock and keep games close, and that can work.
But for that strategy to be effective, they’ll need to upgrade their defense — specifically in the back end.
The Cardinals stink, and they’re shopping a number of their stars on defense, including former first-round draft pick safety Deone Bucannon. Bucannon is a hybrid linebacker-safety, and he would provide the team with the versatility it needs in coverage. He can play either FS or SS, and would surely be an upgrade over Xavier Woods. That would allow the team to play more nickel, which is a better matchup against the pass-heavy gameplans we see in the NFL so often nowadays.  It’s important to point out he’d be on the final year of this rookie deal, so the Cowboys would need some type of insurance he’d be interested in remaining in Dallas, otherwise he’d just be a rental.
If the Cowboys don’t want to be worried about Bucannon potentially being a rental, then they should pursue linebacker Haason Reddick instead, another former first-rounder the Cardinals are interested in moving. Reddick still has three years remaining on his rookie deal, so he’d be cheap, and the timing seems to work out for the Cowboys, as they’re currently rebuilding their linebacker corps. Why not do it with a young player who has a lot of upside? He can play on the strong side, and would be an upgrade over Damien Wilson.
It will be interesting to see what the Cowboys do leading up to the trade deadline at the end of the month.
