Stephen A. Smith in middle of Cowboys stars’ Jerry Jones disagreement

0



Jerry Jones’ silence is sparking significant conversation on his roster.

With the oft-loquacious Cowboys owner choosing not to publicly address the killing of George Floyd, the nationwide protests against racial injustice or the Black Lives Matter movement, Dallas defensive linemen DeMarcus Lawrence and Gerald McCoy have voiced opposing opinions on Jones’ reluctance to make a stand in support of many of his players.

McCoy, a six-time Pro Bowler who signed with the Cowboys in March, believes his new boss shouldn’t keep quiet any longer.

“It don’t look good, I’ll say that,” McCoy recently said on ESPN’s “NFL Live.” “It doesn’t look good, and you can’t be silent at a time like this. I’m new to the Cowboys organization, and I’m blessed to be part of this organization. . . . But when things are not going well for the team, you can hear him screaming. Well, this is life. This is bigger than just football, it’s bigger than money, it’s bigger than winning a Super Bowl. And something needs to be said.”

Lawrence, who signed a five-year, $105 million deal with Dallas last April, isn’t interested in hearing from Jones, unless meaningful action comes alongside it.

The never-silent Stephen A. Smith responded with several posts one hour later, in defense of his show.

“@stephenasmith you use your platform to look for answers from Jerry Jones I don’t. So with all due respect like I said I’m about real changes not public statements from anybody period,” Lawrence said, putting an end to the drama.
