Stephen Jones Asked About Cowboys’ Interest In Earl Thomas

Despite a two-month absence from Leighton Vander Esch, the Cowboys are not going to try and bolster their defensive unit. Executive Vice President Stephen Jones made that clear on Monday.


When talking to 105.3 The Fan, Jones was asked about the team’s interest in former Seahawk/Raven’s safety Earl Thomas. The former Pro Bowler remains a free agent; however, Jones did not confirm or deny interest.


“No, we’re trying to focus on our guys that we have right in the building right now,” Jones said, via PFT. “We’re always looking for ways to improve. We don’t talk about players that aren’t on our team specifically, but I can assure you that with the injuries that we have — certainly looking at the game tape and where we are. We’re always looking to make our football team better.”

It appears that the narrative has not changed. Two weeks ago, his father and owner, Jerry Jones, confirmed the same idea.

Jon Machota of The Athletic claimed that  Jerry Jones said it “would be misleading to say that his team hasn’t discussed” signing Thomas.


“Jerry Jones said on @1053thefan that the Cowboys haven’t had any discussions with Earl Thomas. “Certainly he’s an outstanding football player. It would be a misleading thing to say we haven’t discussed him. It would be misleading to say that we have.”


On Monday, Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News confirmed that the Cowboys “have not reached out” about Thomas.


The Cowboys next play the Atlanta Falcons next week.
