Hog football runs in this family's blood! Jerry Jones and Stephen Jones are two of the most prolific front office executives in football. Frankly, Jones transformed the role, and has turned his crew into the First Family of the Dallas Cowboys.

Jerry Jones attended Arkansas and was co-captain of the Razorbacks football team in 1964. His grandson held offers from Kansas, SMU, and Texas Tech before opting to follow in his grandfather's footsteps and head to Arkansas .

The Arkansas Razorbacks are keeping it in the family. Three-star recruit John Stephen Jones officially announced on Sunday that he will head to Fayetteville and play for the SEC program this upcoming season.

Normally a three-star recruit making a commitment wouldn’t be newsworthy. That’s until we realize this specific recruit is none other than Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ grandson.

The elder Jones is so popular in his adopted home state that he could legitimately run for governor and likely come out on top.

Jones, 75, was a co-captain for the national champion Arkansas football team back in 1964 under then head coach Frank Broyles while playing with Jimmy Johnson. Simply put, Jerry Jones is an institution in and of himself in Fayetteville.

As for the younger Jones, he led Highland Park to two consecutive Texas state titles and is considered a pro-style quarterback. He is the son of current Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones.

Report: Cowboys not expected to cut Bryant .
​The Dallas Cowboys have quite a bit of work to do this offseason, as they are looking to build off a 9-7 season where they disappointingly missed out on playoff contention. Various aspects of the defense need an immediate upgrade. Unfortunately, the Cowboys have very little cap space to make moves, which is why there was a belief circulating that Dallas would consider ​releasing wide receiver Dez Bryant from his contract to achieve flexibility.
