DALLAS, Texas (105.3 THE FAN) – Dallas Cowboys owner/General Manager Jerry Jones joined 105.3 The Fan Friday morning and immediately admitted he was nervous going into the opening game against the 49ers.

Jones is so nervous, he claimed he’s been “edgy” and “biting” people….just another great ‘Jerryism’ for sure.

But looking forward to the home opener – Jones sees it being a high scoring game.

“It’s hard for me to see it being a game where a lot of points aren’t scored,” said Jones. “We need to be ready to score some points.”

As for how the Cowboys are planning on containing the talented 49er’s QB Collin Kapernick, Jones is putting his faith in Bruce Carter saying “We hope we’ll use Carter to do some things.”

Of course the Cowboys have had two big stories this week with the signing of Michael Sam and the return of Josh Brent – following his 10 game suspension by the NFL.

With news reports saying that the NFL was reaching out to teams trying to find Sam a place to play after he was cut by the St. Louis Rams, Jones denied that the Cowboys were specifically contacted about signing the free agent.

Jones said the Cowboys signed Sam because of what he did in his time with St. Louis, and the DE/pass rusher is a position that the Cowboys are in need of filling, but also said that Sam “has a long way to go.”

It wasn’t the hype, it was ” His availability, his position and his high motor” according to Jones that got Sam to the Dallas practice squad.

And with all the hype surrounding Sam, many have wondered if Jones would offer his jersey for sale to capitalize on the attention.  “It never crossed my mind, it was never a consideration” said Jones – mainly because of Sam only being a member of the practice squad.

When asked if he had plans to move Sam to the active roster Jones said, “If someone has a knack despite the measurable’s, they’re valuable.”

Talking about Josh Brent’s punishment by the NFL, Jones said “It was a lot more than I thought it would be,” and that Brent “has been working hard” for his return to the Cowboys roster, but that he was optimistic of his return to the team.

“The critical part of the terms in Josh Brent’s case is that he will be able to have time with the team (before he begins playing in week 11).” said Jones “Brent hasn’t been in pads in 18-months.”
