“We have assured that we will have 10 years of where we don’t have any issues with anything regarding clubs, players or those types of salaries,” Jones said, per the Dallas Morning News. “Now, I will make an exception. Jay Ratliff will tell you, ‘You’ve got a big issue, Jerry, with my salary. I need a little more money.'”
Ratliff’s agent Mark Slough said that both he and his client have no hard feeling regarding the situation and added that Ratliff wouldn’t be demanding a new deal despite the fact that he’s outperformed his current contract.
“I would not characterize our position as unhappy, but I would agree with the characterization that he’s outperformed the contract,” Slough said, per Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com. “We’ll let all the other discussions happen behind closed doors. Jay wants to be a Cowboy for life.”
