The Cowboys are closing in on finalizing their coaching staff for 2020.

They are expected to hire Adam Henry as receivers coach, Todd Archer of ESPN reports. Henry spoke to the Cowboys this week about the job.

Mike McCarthy didn’t retain Sanjay Lal, who had two years remaining on his contract.

Henry spent the past two seasons with the Browns after two seasons with the Giants (2016-17) and one with the 49ers (2015).

He began his NFL career in Oakland, serving on the Raiders’ staff from 2007-11 before going to LSU.

Henry coached Odell Beckham at LSU and with the Giants and Browns.

The Cowboys now have a lead coach at every position. Leon Lett remains a possibility to return as the assistant defensive line coach.

    JJ trades for OBJ instead of signing Cooper?

    As a fan, I say NO! I’m thinking it’s he same with the people’s vote. But I
    admit, Jerry isn’t the brightest bulb in the package.

    Yet, he owns the world’s most valuable sports franchise, and is a billionaire, topping out at 56th wealthiest person in America. As a Father, he actually made his son Stephen interview at a Wendy’s fast food restaurant after coming home and seeing Stephen having a pool party with a bunch of friends when he was supposed to be training. He told Stephen to put on a suit, and said “We are going on a little job interview”, and took him to Wendy’s. Lesson learned for Stephen. After finishing college and lettering as a LB in football all 4 years, Stephen helped Jerry sell his oil company to purchase the Cowboys for $140 million in 1989 – and the rest is history. For what it is worth, Donald Trump passed on buying the Cowboys in 1984 for $50 million, and said this after passing on the deal:

    “I feel sorry for the poor guy who is going to buy the Dallas Cowboys. It’s a no-win situation for him, because if he wins, well, so what, they’ve won through the years. And if he loses, which seems likely because they are having troubles, he’ll be known to the world as a loser.”
    Jerry’s current net worth is $8.5 billion, which is FAR superior to Trump’s net worth.

    All of the above actually happened.

    I am not saying you have to like Jerry Jones, and most actually hate Jerry. With that said, the man is brilliant in ways you and I never will be.
