Fans won't like Jerry Jones' latest comments

What exactly is the organization's mindset here?

There are more than a few confused fans and media alike who are still wondering when the comments made by Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones of going "all in" this offseason will come to fruition. 

There has been a puzzling lack of impact moves with the NFL Draft around the corner, and many still can't exactly figure out what the mindset of team ownership and management is. In the meantime, the team will need to get new contracts worked out before too long for the likes of quarterback Dak Prescott and wide receiver CeeDee Lamb, while defensive end Micah Parsons will need a new deal after the 2025 season. 

But in the words of Jones, he's "not ready" to get into those affairs yet. 

"If you've got trouble with when the timing is around here, it's because I'm not ready to go," Jones said during a pre-draft press conference Tuesday, per ESPN's Todd Archer.

"You may be working on [contracts] and not moving anything but your eyebrows," Jones continued, per Archer and's Patrik Walker. "Who in the world would think that we're not working on it? I work on it. It pops up at two in the morning sometimes. What you're actually questioning is why don't you have something done and negotiated and put in the drawer?

"Well, we'd like to see some more leaves fall. We'd like to see some more action. It's called option quarterback. I've spent my life [playing] option quarterback. I want to see some more cards played."

This likely isn't going to sit well with the fan base of the Cowboys, who are understandably growing more and more frustrated with the lack of impact moves by their team.
