Ex-NFL QB, assistant coach Wade Wilson dies on 60th birthday
DALLAS (AP) — Wade Wilson, the quarterback who led the Minnesota Vikings to an NFC championship game and coached the position with the Dallas Cowboys for more than a decade, died on his 60th birthday Friday.

Cowboys turn season from bust to playoff boom, trip to LA
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Before he knew the next opponent, owner Jerry Jones likened the recovery of his Dallas Cowboys from 3-5 to their first playoff win in four years to a boom-or-bust wagon train headed to California.

Hurns was being dragged down by Seahawks safety Bradley McDougald at the end of a 14-yard catch for a first down when his lower left leg appeared to buckle.
Amari Cooper’s impact on Cowboys immeasurable
Nobody is questioning Jerry Jones anymore about trading a first-round pick for Amari Cooper.
The Cowboys are 5-1 since the 24-year-old wide receiver was acquired from Oakland for a 2019 selection that will likely be in the 20s. They're one win from securing the NFC East title after Cooper dominated the Philadelphia Eagles last week, catching 10 passes for 217 yards and three touchdowns in a 29-23 overtime victory.
Praise for Jerry Jones? Cooper trade really did boost Dallas
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Jerry Jones is getting praised for a football move.
There might not be a better way to explain the impact of the oft-criticized owner and general manager's bold trade for Dallas, sending a 2019 first-round pick to Oakland for receiver Amari Cooper with the Cowboys fading fast in the NFC East race.
Cooper leads the NFL in yards receiving since joining the Cowboys, who have won five straight games to get to the brink of the division title and a home wild-card game.

Jerry Jones: Cowboys ‘not in anything’ without improved play
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Even if the Dallas Cowboys were better than 3-5, Jerry Jones says he would have plenty of cause for concern based on what he saw in a damaging loss to Tennessee.
And the normally upbeat owner and general manager doesn't care to discuss the NFC East standings, even though the Cowboys can pull even with defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia by getting their first road win of the season at the Eagles on Sunday.
Cowboys adding former personnel man Brandt to ring of honor
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Former player personnel director Gil Brandt is headed for the Dallas Cowboys' ring of honor.

Column: How about some other sports for Conor McGregor?
Conor McGregor couldn't win his fight, though he seemed to help the Dallas Cowboys win theirs.
Just ask Jerry Jones, who had reason to be smitten with the UFC star after the team Jones owns blew out Jacksonville on Sunday with the fighter/whiskey salesman providing the emotional spark.
"He just energized every place he went in the stadium," Jones said. "You'd like to say we're going to have to get him in here for every game in order to have a good first half, at least."

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Texas A&M has already played — and lost — to No. 1 and No. 2 in the opening month of coach Jimbo Fisher's first season.

Cowboys’ offense can’t do enough in 24-13 loss to Seahawks
SEATTLE (AP) — Jerry Jones is trying to remain supportive of a Dallas Cowboys offense that has shown only fleeting moments of promise through three weeks of the season.

Cowboys see Prescott’s runs as another way to help Elliott
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dak Prescott wasn't much into Cam Newton comparisons when the subject came up before his Dallas Cowboys faced the star quarterback of the Carolina Panthers in the opener.
And that was before Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones dropped Newton's name while suggesting the Cowboys needed to use their QB as a runner more after Dallas lost to the Panthers.
Dez Bryant trolls Cowboys on Twitter after loss to Panthers
Dez Bryant's Twitter troll game is in All-Pro form.
The free-agent wide receiver called out his former team with a series of critical tweets aimed at the Dallas Cowboys after they dropped their season opener.
Bryant was released in April after eight seasons with the team and remains unsigned. He has received interest from Cleveland and Baltimore, but his thoughts were with the Cowboys during — and after — their 16-8 season-opening loss at Carolina.
Cowboys say they have NFL’s 1st sponsorship deal with casino
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys say they are the first NFL team to have a sponsorship agreement with a casino.
The deal with WinStar World Casino and Resort in Oklahoma was announced Thursday. League owners voted recently to allow clubs to strike such deals. Owner and general manager Jerry Jones says he's "excited about the future of gaming as it relates to the NFL."
OXNARD, Calif. (AP) — Dak Prescott's best test yet as the new face of the Cowboys came two days after owner Jerry Jones once again declared that all Dallas players will stand for the national anthem and even said they wouldn't be afforded the alternative of staying in the locker room.
The star quarterback didn't pause or stammer. He didn't stop himself to consider what his peers might think. He made it clear he will stand, and doesn't think it's right to do otherwise.
Trump applauds Cowboys owner for anthem stance
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump congratulated Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys football team, for saying his players will be required to stand for the playing of the national anthem.
Trump tweeted Friday: "Way to go Jerry. This is what the league should do!"
Jones was the first owner to publicly say that his players would not be allowed to stay off the field during the anthem. Jones said the team's policy is "you stand at the anthem, toe on the line."
OXNARD, Calif. (AP) — It's been several years since Jason Garrett's future as coach of the Dallas Cowboys was a hot topic waiting for owner Jerry Jones at the start of training camp.

OXNARD, Calif. (AP) — Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones doubled down Wednesday on insisting that his players stand for the national anthem, declaring that he wouldn't support anyone who chose to stay in the locker room.
Speaking at his annual news conference to open training camp in California, the outspoken billionaire became the first owner to say publicly that his players would not be allowed to stay off the field during the anthem.
Some NFL coaches already are on hot seat in July
NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL season doesn't start for another six weeks and already job security is an issue for some coaches.
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Errol Spence Jr. gave the home folks the knockout he figured they wanted. There just wasn't much of the show he hoped would go with it.
Spence stopped Carlos Ocampo to retain his IBF welterweight title, dropping the Mexican challenger with a right hand to the body as the first round was ending Saturday night.
NFL owners were busy handing out prizes at their meeting in Atlanta, doling out Super Bowls to various cities and giving Nashville the 2019 draft.
Then they gave one to themselves: A new anthem policy adopted with the fervent hope that the protests sparked by Colin Kaepernick will go away and the golden goose that is the NFL will continue to soar untouched.
Stay in the locker room if you wish during the national anthem. But don't even think about kneeling on the sideline where you can be seen.
