Jones: Cowboys looking harder at free agent's age and injury history

The Dallas Cowboys have notoriously made bad free agency decisions, overpaying aging players. Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told a local radio station they they’re working to change that mentality taking into account age and injury history when signing players.

“We can’t just spend freely, and it’s probably a good thing,” Jones said Friday on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM], via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “I think we’ve really taken a stance here that we got to get value and we got to be efficient in the free agency market.”

“I don’t ever want to say never, but when you talk about making your commitment long term, I will say that we’re taking a lot harder look at it than ever before. Because whether we were just unlucky or whatever it is, you certainly have to say, ‘Hey, we’re going to have to do something different.’ Certainly two years in a row, we’ve had a problem with that.”
