“It is awesome. I was with Bruce at the Washington Redskins. I was coaching on the staff when he was there. I have always had a personal relationship with him. He has a relationship with Myles. I thought it was important for him to come out and spend time with us. He knows (defensive coordinator Gregg) Williams. He knows (defensive line coach) Clyde Simmons. He knows some of our coaches. We all kind of go back.
“I don’t have any butt-dialing with that thing, I know that,” Jones said.
That’s not the only thing Jones has had to say about butts. He was asked if Felix Jones was an every-down back or a change-of-pace guy.
“He has one of those nice bubble butts,” Jerry Jones replied. This was the 49ers’ first playoff game in nine years. Jim Harbaugh took over a team that had gone 6-10 and turned into an embarrassment under Mike Singletary. The team stormed to a 13-3 record and a first-round bye.
We’re not sure what that meant about Felix Jones’ role in the Cowboys offense at the time. We’re also not surprised it was Jones’ answer.
The 2015 season was a rough one for Dallas, and the Cowboys’ 4-12 finish presented Jones with the opportunity to say something else about butts.
However, Graham had a slower start than expected with the Seahawks in 2015. Through 11 games, he had 74 targets and 48 catches but reached the end zone just two times, well off his usual career numbers. Much was made of the Seahawks using Graham more as a blocker, which Field Gulls explored in depth here.
Jones’ children, Stephen, Charlotte, and Jerry Jr., are poised to take things over for the Cowboys when Jones does decide to call it a career. But we’ll enjoy his creative expressions for as long as we can.
