Jerry Jones wishes LeBron James would play tight end for Dallas Cowboys


There are a lot of “celebrities” headed to AT&T Stadium in Arlington for the Dallas Cowboys season opener against the New York Giants. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones old the Elf & Slater show on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM] that NBA superstars LeBron James and Chris Paul will be in attendance along with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, all three are self-proclaimed Dallas Cowboys fans.

“I hope to see Lebron,” Jones told the radio show, via the Dallas Morning News. “I just wish I could suit him out.”

They asked what position he’d play.

“Tight end,” Jones said.

The Cowboys are shifting their offense to include more two tight end sets and drafted tight end Gavin Escobar in the second round of last April’s draft. LeBron James lining up opposite Jason Witten would be a very intriguing combination. Add wide receiver Dez Bryant into the mix and the Cowboys could have a potentially unstoppable passing attack.

Dez Bryant’s prediction that Tony Romo will win an MVP would definitely be in the realm of possibilities. For now though, LeBron will probably just be content to watch the game from the stands.
