Dallas Cowboys: Jerry Jones says he would have no problem working with Bill Belichick

Once the Dallas Cowboys got blasted in the playoffs by the Green Bay Packers, the perfect destination for Bill Belichick seemed to be playing out.

However, one of the most surprising decisions of the offseason once again had Belichick in the cold…for now.  That was Jerry Jones sticking with Mike McCarthy going forward. The decision showed a bit of patience for the Cowboys owner who typically acts fast when things don’t go as expected.

The Cowboys do have some big decisions to make this offseason to make another Super Bowl run in 2024 and you better believe Jones will make moves to improve his squad.  But, if McCarthy doesn’t get over the hump, the Cowboys owner could still turn to Belichick, a person he knows and a person he says he can work with.

“I know him personally and I like him,” Jones told Yahoo Sports.  “There’s no doubt in my mind we could work together.  None.”

But, what about the full control part?  Would Belichick ask for less control to coach a team like the Cowboys, to coach a player like Micah Parsons?  Would Jones take a back seat and let Belichick run the show for a couple of years.  He did it with Bill Parcells, so it’s possible given his hunger to win a ring.

Like the Eagles, this would be an opportunity for Belichick to thrive again with a roster already in place.  Another team that could just be a coach away, the Cowboys will also be a team in the spotlight if things start to go left in 2024 and end in another postseason failure.
