Jerry Jones has made it clear the Cowboys are passing on Colin Kapernick.
Earlier speculation that the Cowboys might sent a representative to view Colin Kaepernick’s workout was met harshly on social media with some angry Cowboys fans.
Cowboy fans will not have to worry.
Without explicitly saying so, Jones declared that current Cowboys backup quarterback Cooper Rush is a better fit for the team than Kaepernick, whose highly anticipated NFL workout Saturday has brought about zero job offers.
“We believe that we’re in great shape relative to our position. … We’re very fortunate right now that our quarterbacking is real good,” Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan, via The Athletic.
Originally scheduled to take place at the Falcons’ training facility, Kaepernick’s personal Scouting Combine was instead held at a local school roughly an hour away — the goal being transparency from Kaep’s camp. Few media members and even fewer scouts attended the event at Charles Drew High, which Jones believes was a dog-and-pony show.
“That situation from the get-go probably had a lot more that wasn’t about football involved in it and consequently we got the results of that dynamic,” he said.
The Cowboys were planning to get an up-close and personal look at Kaepernick. Until they weren’t. In an eleventh-hour change of heart, Jones revealed last Friday that the team wouldn’t attend the former 49ers superstar’s tryout.
“We’re not gonna have anybody there,” Jones announced on 105.3 The Fan. “We’ll look at the tape if we need any information there. We really like our quarterbacks.”
