Jerry Jones: 'Our cap is requiring us to do the things that are good for our future'

The Dallas Cowboys are dealing with another tight cap situation in free agency and the offseason. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said they’re looking to the future, and that the situation is putting them in a good situation for the future.

“We’re loading up to the extent we can,’’ Jones said, via David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. “We’re also doing a good job for our future, the future being the next two, three, four years out.

“But our cap is requiring us to do the things that are good for our future.’’

It hasn’t been a difficult adjustment for Jones though.

“Not at all,’’ Jones said. “In my life, in my career, I’ve had many times when I could be more aggressive because of the financial shape that I was in and times I had to be pretty conservative because of the financial shape I was in. The art of the deal is to make the adjustments.

“There is no question we pushed it to the hilt in the belief that this was the time to do it, a time when (Tony) Romo was arguably at one of the highest times of his career.

“When I look back over the last three years, that was the time to make the investment. And we did.’’
