The Dallas Cowboys have been mostly quiet during the offseason. However, it doesn’t mean that they won’t make any news-making splash. However, this involves Jerry Jones in an unfortunate incident. Following a minor vehicle collision on Wednesday, the Cowboys’ president and general manager has been momentarily admitted to a Medical Facility in Dallas.

Jerry Jones, 79 years old, has continued to be a major contributor to the Cowboys’ summer maneuverings. Most recently, he nearly showed the franchise’s big board ahead of the 2022 NFL draft to the media personnel. He is the squad’s GM and president, while his son Stephen Jones is the team’s COO, EVP, and head of player personnel; besides being the team’s owner.
