Jerry Jones thinks there won’t be any collusion evidence on his phone

As the Colin Kaepernick collusion case moves forward, Kaepernick’s lawyers soon will be gathering text messages and emails, based on a narrow array of search terms, from phones used by key NFL figures, including Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. But Jones thinks they won’t get much from his cell phone device.

‘They’re gonna be a little surprised at how little I use that phone,” Jones told 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Wednesday morning.

One reason for the limited use of the phone in past years likely came from the fact that he was still using a flip phone. He no longer does.

“Me and all the drug dealers in Dallas had that flip phone,” Jones said.

Funny line, albeit not exactly the image the NFL is hoping for. Still, Jerry can always be counted on for a humorous quip. If/when he ends up being questioned under oath in Kaepernick’s grievance, the smart move would be to avoid getting a laugh and to focus on answering questions truthfully, but without the kind of rambling responses that will give the lawyers great fodder for follow-up questions.

As to the prospect of testifying in the collusion grievance, Jones says he’ll do whatever the lawyers advise him to do. Plenty of lawyers have heard that before, and then ultimately sit there cringing while the witness who thinks he’s helping keep the legal ship afloat is unwittingly firing a torpedo in to its hull.

  1. I seriously doubt they will find anything on Jerry Jones phone. He made his stance public, for all to hear, a long time ago! It’s a shame more of the clueless owners did not follow his lead! The Cowboys are still knocking it out of the ballpark on THEIR TV ratings, usually, no matter who they play. Jones has never been accused of not being a good businessman, and part of his acumen is to not piss off the fans!

  2. It’s pretty pathetic that Colin’s gotten this far. He’s the one that started these issues and opted out of his contract with San Fran. Why would he think any team would want him now?

  3. “One reason for the limited use of the phone in past years likely came from the fact that he was still using a flip phone. He no longer does.”

    No longer does?? Does that mean he “destroyed” it?! Ted Wells finds it suspicious that he conveniently replaced his phone!!

    LOL

    The dopes out there who still believe Goodell, will not get that joke. HIlarious.

  6. I’m surprised Goodell hasn’t bribed a team to sign Kaepernick, like he did when he bribed the Rams to sign Sams.

  7. No surprise – probably won’t find any signs of “collusion” on any owner’s phone. I doubt these billionaires are shooting each other a text saying, “Hey, let’s block that Kaepernick guy from playing football”.

    It’s an attention grabbing suit that will go nowhere. Kaepernick probably realized he sabotaged his career prospects, knew the money would run out, and a media hound attorney coupled with bad advice from his entourage convinced him to sue.

    Kaepernick was done with football when he sat. It was written all over him and he has done NOTHING since then to prove otherwise. If he wanted it he would be having open workouts, training, and saying very loudly “I don’t care what my role is, I just want to FOCUS ON FOOTBALL and contribute”.

  8. You only have to be worried in legal proceedings if you did what you’re being accused of.

    Considering this case is the absolute definition of frivolous, the Owners have no reason to be nervous and every reason to joke around about this. The only smoking gun that would blow this thing up is a text or email exchange from one owner to another saying “I won’t sign him if you won’t.” I can’t fathom that that would exist. One owner doesn’t really have anything to gain from coercing another team’s owner into not signing Kaepernick.

    In fact, I’m sure a lot of owners would love for someone to just “fall on the sword” and sign the guy so they can stop having to answer questions and accusations of why their own team isn’t signing him.

  9. It only takes a few taps to delete text message conversations on a phone and a couple of mouse clicks to delete e-mails. It’s not like they need staff to destroy their phones with hammers or Bleach Bit their email servers.

  10. “THAT phone” being the key word. Like drug dealers, Jerry uses a burner phone just for these court ordered occasions.

    ______________________________________________

    If they get a warrant for your phone number, they don’t need the physical device to retrieve every single text message ever sent to and from your number, unless it was sent my a means of encrypted messaging, similar to iMessage, or Facebook Messenger etc, since these messages are sent as “data”.

  12. The owners don’t have to use collusion to see a 2nd rate QB not have a job. He’s like Michael Sams. He’s just not that good at football. The NFL should make Shaad Khan or Ed York sign this Cancer.

  13. nope on collusion but they’ll be big bombshell news reports about the comments they find on the phones like,
    He quit on his contract, He’s a distraction, He won’t play for league minimum and he sucked without harbaugh.. Look out!

  14. Hard to get information from a black box on his living room table connected to the wall with a cord and a big dial with holes in it on the front.

  15. “Me and all the drug dealers in Dallas had that flip phone,” Jones said.

    Was he really stupid enough to say this?

    Wow.

  16. Kaepernick Attorney: “Welcome Mr Jones. Have you or any of your fellow league owners every discussed colluding to keep my client Mr Kaepernick out of the NFL?”

    Jerrah Jones: “Golly no, why on earth would we do that? I wish one of my fellow owners would sign a guy who went 3-16 over his last two years as a starter in this league. Especially if they were in my division. Maybe you could convince the Eagles to bench Carson Wentz for him?”

    ***Jones laughs, gets up to walk out in a Costanza like fashion and says “That’s all folks”***

  17. Again people, this is not a court case, but, a hearing before an arbitrator under the cba. There is no subpoena power, no ability to coerce a witness to testify, no warrants will be issued. The arbitrator has only the power granted him under the cba.

  18. he opted out of a 5th year option with the 49’ers that would have paid him 16M. So basically he quit his job and now wants to complain that’s he’s unemployed? just shut up Colin. Please

    What a steaming pile…. Kaep only started “protesting” when he was benched for Blaine Gabbert. But let me ask you, how many games did Kaep “protest” before he was benched? Did these police only become overzealous after Blaine Gabbert beat out Kaep?

    Not true. Colin made up this excuse when he was chastised for sitting.

    And who exactly has short time? That presents as a threat. Probably the reason for many of these “issues” since it’s the way certain culture roll. look in your own back yard before blaming others for your situation. It’s the adult and civilized way to live. Or you can just start a riot any time things don’t go your way.

    Wrongest comment ever. Do you have any idea how many people have been released from prison now that DNA has proved they were not guilty?

  22. This Geragos/Kaepernick thing is ridiculous! Owner talk about players all the time for trades, for needs etc. Geragos wants money. He’s a known ‘ambulance chaser’ in L-a-L-a-Land.

  23. The problem the NFL has with Kaepernick, not that it will amount to anything, is that they’ve had owners, coaches, and players yapping about Kaepernick, with some saying he’s no good, and others saying he’s a distraction. Then you had the Ravens and the Seahawks yapping about maybe signing him, but ultimately didn’t.

    That said, if the media hadn’t made such a big deal out of Kaepernick at every turn, it likely wouldn’t have gotten to this point.

    of course Jerry also said they didn’t have any evidence on Elliot.

    Good thing he didn’t use the “inmates” analogy!

  26. They won’t find any collusion evidence anywhere. There was no need to collude because every team came to their own conclusion independently of each other. Many times were probably hoping a rival would sign him just to create distractions.

  27. @nhpats and Lemmy
    Your opinions and deflection are not up for debate here. Kaep was clear about the reasons for his protest from the beginning. Stick to facts.

    Are you sure? Because that would mean that all that noise about Brady’s phone was stupid and meaningless.

    Not sure if you are trying to deny that Kaeps whole thing started as sulking over his benching, because it did and that is very much a fact. Not a convenient one to be sure. But still a fact.

    Not provable but this man’s opinion is that the card was also played to prevent the team from cutting him just before his salary became guaranteed. I say this because it was clear they were looking to do that right before he started upping the ante. I cant say I know for sure that was the reason but I can certainly say for sure that the timing was pretty convenient.

    Despite what I think of Kaepernicks game I do still think the players that picked it up after were completely sincere.

  30. Even if there was actual collusion, which I doubt, I cant imagine any owners would store it on their cell phones. Can they really be that stupid to have that on record, as opposed to just side banter in person at an owners meeting or something like that

  31. The absence of any evidence on his phone proves collusion indeed exists. I have not heard one good argument why Kaepernick isn’t the backup to Dak Prescott.

  32. Krapernick has been garbage for three years and has only gotten worse. Lost his job to gabbert twice in the last two years. Has terrible accuracy. He overthrows and underthrows everything. Can’t read defenses. Has no touch on his passes. He’s a poor rb trying to play qb. He started sitting through the anthem because he was butthurt for losing his job again to gabbert and knew his career was over. Out of nowhere his crying turns into a protest and the liberal media who were reporting how awful of a qb he is , all of a sudden think he’s a good qb and turn it into a year long political circus. Everyone knows kaepernick cant play qb. That’s why nobody wants him. Nobody wanted him before he Started his protest.

    ****************************************************************
    Because nobody, not you, not me, not Kaepernick himself is owed and explanation for why a team chooses to employ someone over him. But, lets just look at the financial….Kaepernick opted out of $14.5 million……Cooper Rush (Dallas’ #2 QB is making $466,000……you do the math!

  34. Kaepernick’s numbers are very good. He should be playing in this league. What’s Copper Rush’ TDs vs INTs? Kaepernick is 70/30 with an 89 rating. His career avg. would put him in the top 1/3 this year.

  35. It isn’t collusion because no team wants to sign a sub par quarterback with limited skills. Add in Kaeperneck’s fringe political beliefs and the majority of fans being tired of his antics and owners would be crazy to sign the idiot. Kaeperneck made his own bed on this one. He will never play in the league again. So if your entire life revolves around Kaeperneck playing in the NFL, you will continue to be as disappointed as you probably are right now. If you enjoy disappointment, you must be thrilled.

  36. If anyone has ever listened to Alan Dershowich (spelling), you would have learned there needs to be a law in place before you say there is a crime.

    He said the whole thing with Russia and collusion is a joke. There won’t be a crime because there isn’t a law that prohibits what they are investigating.

    Hence, is there a law in place prohibiting owners from discussing players? No, there isn’t. So what a JOKE all of this is.

    The media though is quick to push all of it though

    Thats great, but you dont pay a back up more than you are paying the starter. Is Kaepernick going to ride the bench for under $600k this year, because Dak is on the books for $635k? Kaepernick opted out of $14.5 million, something tells me that he isnt signing to ride the bench and and make minimum wage.

    There just isnt any collusion here….CK is an average QB who posses a PR nightmare for any team that chooses to take on his services. Its not like this guy is the 2nd coming of Tom Brady….he isnt owed a job!

  38. Kaepernick’s numbers are very good. He should be playing in this league. What’s Copper Rush’ TDs vs INTs? Kaepernick is 70/30 with an 89 rating. His career avg. would put him in the top 1/3 this year.

    Why would any team, not just Dallas, pay a malcontent QB, who would want at least 10 million, to be backup to Prescott, who makes 450 grand? Are you really this stupid?
