Jerry Jones gets “visions of sugar plums” picturing Kyle Pitts with Dak Prescott

A report early this month said that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is infatuated with tight end Kyle Pitts and a video the team shared this week does little to refute that label.

The team shared a clip of Pitts’ virtual meeting with Jones and others from the organization that opens with Jones making no attempt to disguise how much he enjoys the idea of Pitts joining the offense in Dallas.

“I’m excited to have you come into this league, and man, what a pair up we could do with ole Dak Prescott and some of these guys that we’ve got out there with options to get you the ball. So we can dream of visions of sugar plums around here,” Jones said.

The Cowboys are set to pick 10th in the first round and other teams ahead of them likely have similar visions when they think about drafting Pitts, so trading up would be the only way to ensure that Jones’ visions can become reality. If that doesn’t happen, a defensive addition or offensive line help could be the paths on the table for the Cowboys.

  1. I guess it all comes down to what Jerruh would give up to the Falcons to slide up to that #4 spot.

  2. Thankfully for all cowboys fans, he won’t fall to them. They really need defensive help.

  3. Imagine teasing up into the top 5 for a TE. There is a reason Dallas hasn’t been relevant since the 90’s.

  4. Wow. Just wow.

    I will laugh myself to high heaven if someone else picks him.

    This will be like when NE knew moron wanted McGinest in ‘94 and NE took McGinest right in front of Jerrah.

    bawhaha

  5. ….. or ol’ Jerry is laying on the b.s. extra-thick to misdirect attention from his real object of desire.

  6. Haven’t we heard enough lines from Jones over the years to know that this is how he talks? Does anyone think that Pitts is the only guy Jones praises in personal visits? So, why would the Cowboys make this public? Remember, this is the time of the year for smokescreens! PS to someone above, Willie McGinest was taken 4th overall in the 1994 draft; Dallas was picking 23rd that year. McGinest wasn’t taken “right” in front of Dallas; Dallas tried to package pick 23 and Alvin Harper to move up to take McGinest.

  7. Sugar Plums sure. Bigger question is how effective is he going to be with Dak throwing him the ball? Dak is not the most accurate passer and thinking that this is going to be Brady to Gronkowski 2.0 is fools talk. Dallas need to concentrate on their defense and getting the o-line healthy before they start playing around with extra pieces!

  8. Will he be the icing on the cake that goes along with that straw that stirs the drink? All of which sets the table at that annual end of season playoff loss party at your place Jerry. Can’t wait

  9. Unless Pitts can somehow cover the deep out or rush the QB, they’ll lose games 48-42 this year instead of 48-35 like last year should they pick him. Lol

    Meanwhile BB is hoping to use the Patriots’ 1st round pick to re-draft N’Neak Harry

  11. The time has come for Stephen to seize GM control of the team from Jerry Daddy. JJ has done nothing in what, 25 years? Stephen looks more than capable. Jerry, not so much. Despite their popularity, the Cowboys are irrelevant in terms being playoff competitive.

  12. so what Jerrah really wants is someone else and hopes to sell someone on taking taking Pitts.

  13. I can understand Jerry’s infatuation…Kyle Pitts is legit,he looks like a bigger,faster and better skilled Tony Gonzalez…if that’s possible.

  14. I can picture Dallas being down 21-0 in the first quarter because the D could not stop anyone. Meanwhile they will have four 1000 yard receivers and 1000 yard running back. Dak will pass for 8000 yards while Dallas goes 4-13.

  15. Still trying to rebuild the triplets lol your Oline is breaking down old man , did you not learn anything from Jimmy.

  16. I also get visions of body bags and ambulances for anyone versus the WFT defense .

  17. Jerry Jones must be having alluciations from his Metamucil if he believes that Kyle Pitts will be available at #10 pick. The most logical and it may be to far down is The Miami Dolphins taking Pitts. This is based on all the other teams needing QBs. The only obstacle is The Falcons, whom may ride Matty “Ice” Ryan for a couple of more seasons and not take a QB. But, if they do, Miami will scoop him up. Then #18 pick, will be Najee Harris RB. He will be snatched away from the grubbie hands of The Steelers, whom want him badly. Too bad. This is what a logical draft would be.

    That’s what I’m thinking. Clearly some of these people have already forgotten about what happened with Jerry and his admiration for Manziel.

  19. Sounds good to me. You just made your QB the highest paid player in football you better treat him like a God and get him some god great talent.

  20. Nice to see that in these later years Jerry has finally given up on winning Super Bowls and is content to win the offseason instead

  21. I think that sugar plums will give you diabetes and Jerry Jones really needs to grow up. The violence of the NFL may be on the leading edges of becoming archaic and obsolete.

  22. they need to draft him because of dak’s stupid contract, zeke is gone for sure next year and they can move on from coop for like 6 mill after this season as well, and you danm well know they’re dumping both those contracts…they need a skill player on a rookie deal

  23. I remember saying to myself(couple years ago) that the Cowboys were finally improving since Jerry stopped meddling….

  24. Falcons are about to get the deal of a lifetime! Multiple future firsts once JJ gets fixated on one guy. His poker face is terrible!

  25. they need a skill player on a rookie deal

    ———————————

    They need about 40 guys on rookie deals

  26. Someone will trade up if Pitts drops out of the top 6.
    Betting on AZ moving up from 16 and giving pick 16 and next years 1st and 3rd

  27. Sugarplums are over rated. It’s not even a fruit. It’s a hard candy. So if you’re gonna have visions of candy it should be something good. Like Twizzlers. Jerry should have visions of Twizzlers when picturing Kyle Pitts with Dak.

  28. Pitts is possibly the best talent in the draft. Jerry has quite a few playmaker on offense already. They don’t even utilize them properly

  29. Prolly should take the best defensive pick you can.

    Other teams have visions of sugar plums looking at that defense.

    That had nothing to do with misdirection. Manziel was not at the top of the Cowboys board. When Jerry asked his “war room” staff about taking Manziel, nobody wanted to.

    “Bigger question is how effective is he going to be with Dak throwing him the ball?

    Thank you for your feeble attempt as an NFL analyst. Dallas needed defense last year too, but CeeDee Lamb fell into their laps, and they took the highest rated player on their board (you are welcome Philthadelphia fans). If Pitts were to fall to 10 (Dallas won’t trade to pick 4 to get him) Dallas will run to the podium and go defense-heavy rds 2 and beyond. Pitts is a stud, and most teams (who don’t need a QB) will also have him very high on their draft boards. Dallas doesn’t “need” a TE necessarily, but BPA is a solid strategy, and a good offense is a defenses best friend

    BTW, the vast majority of passes to TE’s are short passes, which Dak is as accurate as any other QB. The old meme was Dak didn’t have downfield accuracy, but 2019 stats put that to rest, as he was 4th in the league in downfield pass completion. 2020 stats are inapplicable, obviously.

    Seriously, do some a risk research before just blindly spew out nonsense.

  32. Young quarterbacks are doing better only because the NFL is changing their offensive scheme to college football schemes.

  33. “Seriously, do some a risk research before just blindly spew out nonsense.” Reading that attempt at a sentence gave me a headache.

  34. He better package Cooper into any deal hes trying to make to move up… The Bengals could use Cooper i suppose.

  35. Say what ya want about JJ…… but the man is a national treasure when it comes to quotes lmao

  36. Lest anyone think that Atlanta is doing themselves any favors by drafting a TE.
    They have so many holes. They should be begging someone to trade with them.

  37. Let me guess he is going to draft Pitts and say he can play many positions, so lets see if he can play CB. Would not surprise me with Jerry.

  38. Ok, before crazy Jerruh starts coming out, look at their first round picks since 2010:

    Dez Bryant
    Tyron Smith
    Morris Claiborne
    Travis Frederick
    Zack Martin
    Byron Jones
    Zeke
    Taco Charlton
    Vander Esch
    Ceedee Lamb

    With the exception of Charlton and Claiborne, those are all solid picks. Vander Esch, when healthy, is a stud.

    Jerruh isn’t making the picks or the picking decisions. Stephen is. Thankfully.

  39. The title should be changed from “visions of sugar plums” to “nightmares.”

  40. Another publication floated the idea if Pitts is on the board at #6 .. Cowboys send Amari Cooper and picks to flip 1st’s with the Dolphins. Dolphins get more draft picks, a #1 WR… and probably a draft target they still had in mind… Cowboys get their “sugar plums”…. thoughts?
