It is not a matter of if the Cowboys are going to give coach Jason Garrett an extension, it's a matter of when the Cowboys will give Garrett an extension. How many years and how much money will be involved are concerns too, I guess, but coaching salaries don't get anyone hot and bothered.
What gets people worked up is whether or not a guy like Garrett should have the Cowboys gig despite some struggles with in-game management at various points of his coaching career. Jerry Jones does not share those concerns and believes if Garrett had been a free agent during the NFL hiring cycle, "he would've had five offers" from other teams.
"If Jason Garrett had been out on the market two weeks ago, he would've had five offers for head coaching. I know that," Jones said on his weekly appearance on "The Shan and RJ Show" on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas.
This is kind of an interesting claim. Initially it sounds a lot one of those crazy things that Jerry usually lobs out. Jason Garrett would be wanted by more than an eighth of the NFL if he was a free agent? Please.
