Kyler Murray is 'a generational talent' worth recent Cardinal QB struggles, GM says

Kyler Murray is 'a generational talent' worth recent Cardinal QB struggles, GM says GM Steve Keim said his team's QB issues, including one-and-done Josh Rosen's struggles last year, were worth it to land Kyler Murray.

Jerry Jones spoke publicly about the ongoing contract dispute between the Cowboys and their star wide receiver, saying both sides are committed to getting a deal done. In the meantime, he's not concerned the rocky contract negotiations will hinder Dallas's on-field success in 2014.

The eminently quotable Jerry Jones is known to turn a colorful phrase from time to time, but the grisly way he explained his perspective on the contract extension issues confronting the Dallas Cowboys certainly took things to a disturbing level.

It’s no secret that the Cowboys have some fires to put out on the extension front with Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper and current holdout Ezekiel Elliott all angling for lucrative contracts. Jones insisted this week that this isn’t his first rodeo when it comes to such matters, so there’s no reason for him to panic, though he admitted he could use some help.

Ezekiel Elliott contract update: Cowboys, running back not close on deal, report says The two sides are far apart on "everything," including the length of the deal and guarantees, according to NFL Network.

An attorney for Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says NFL owners are being misled about negotiations on a contract extension for commissioner Roger Goodell Don Van Natta Jr. joins OTL to explain Jerry Jones ' moves in threatening to sue the NFL if Roger Goodell's contract extension is approved.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones broke out another unusual analogy on Tuesday when asked about multiple key contract negotiations . Jones was asked whether he was worried about the team’s current contract negotiations with running back Ezekiel Elliott, quarterback Dak Prescott and

To illustrate as much, the Cowboys owner for some reason relied upon a visceral description of a person who was involved in a terrible car accident.

“Picture you were a driver of a car and you had a wreck and your hand was almost severed off, but you didn’t understand your anatomy,” Jones said Tuesday, via the Dallas News. “You look down, you’re spurting blood, you open the door, and run to the woods, and either die bleeding to death or shock. The educated man looks down, knows his anatomy, squeezes and knows his best chance is to wait for help. That’s because he’s been there a lot and done that. So I’m squeezing and waiting for help.”

Disturbing, indeed. Jones, thankfully, opted not to paint such a nightmarish picture when responding to a question about whether or not he’s worried over the belief Elliott could miss regular-season games absent an extension.

Jerry Jones , the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, has escalated a feud with Goodell, threatening to sue the league and some fellow team owners over negotiations to extend Goodell’s contract , according to three people with direct knowledge of the situation.

As noted, Jones has a knack for articulating himself in bizarre, sometimes even off-putting, ways. Let’s just say using gruesome imagery about car accidents, a nearly severed hand, “spurting blood” and “bleeding to death” is simply another outrageous quote out of the loquacious Jones.

Cowboys frustrated with Prescott, Cooper, Elliott talks.
The Cowboys are growing frustrated with the lack of progress in negotiations with Ezekiel Elliott, Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper, Todd Archer of ESPN.com (on Twitter) hears. The team believes solid offers have been made that would put each player in the top five at their respective positions, yet the needle has not moved much. In the case of Elliott, the Cowboys are pitching him a contract that would be closer to Le’Veon Bell‘s than Todd Gurley's, Calvin Watkins of The Athletic (on Twitter) reports. That deal would make Elliott second-highest paid running back in NFL. It seems that Zeke is either gunning for No.
