During an interview with 105.3 The Fan, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones claimed that HC Jason Garrett would have “five offers for head coaching” if he was available.
“If Jason Garrett had been out on the market two weeks ago, he would’ve had five offers for head coaching,” Jones said, via Pro Football Talk. “I know that.”
As for a possible extension for Garrett, Jones said he had no updates at this time.
“I don’t have any comments this morning about extensions, because my options are open,” Jones said. “Nobody knows, because I don’t know this morning, and I’m the last say.”

“It could [add pressure]. Without a doubt,” Wentz said, via Pro Football Talk. “You look at that and you could say it could put more pressure. I mean, you can say coming into the season there was more pressure. But I do everything I can to block that stuff out. I think right now, going forward, my focus is getting my body right. And to play this game freely the way I did last year before the injury and cut it loose. Get rid of all that pressure and anxiety and whatever it may be, just play the game freely. And that’s where I’m going to get to.”
