No owner in sports makes the headlines as often as Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
The often-controversial business mogul has a feel for the camera and a passion for making blunt statements, most of which often stir the pot.
That happened again recently when he went on record saying that Dak Prescott was the best leader he had ever seen.
That’s why former NFL star Richard Sherman mocked him on Undisputed, stating that he must’ve closed his eyes when he saw Tom Brady or Peyton Manning.
Sherman said that he actually likes Prescott as a person, but that was just Jones trying to raise him up and instill some confidence in him.

And there’s nothing wrong with what Jones said.
The most ironic part about this is that Jones has often made some not-so-positive remarks about Prescott, dating all the way back to when he was trying to get a contract extension.
Even recently, in training camp, he lauded his backup Cooper Rush shortly after the reports of Prescott’s turnover issues.
He also traded for Trey Lance without consulting, and many people speculated that he might not be that satisfied with his current quarterback.
Whatever the case, history has taught us that we should take Jerry Jones’ words with a grain of salt.NEXT: Former Cowboys Star Wants 1 Falcons Player In Dallas
