Dallas Cowboys Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Earlier this offseason, Dallas Cowboys team owner and general manager claimed that the team was going to go “all in” this offseason in an attempt to win a Super Bowl. But in a pretty brutal turn of events, it doesn’t sound like that will be the case, after all.

During a recent interview with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram at the NFL League Meetings this week, Jerry Jones changed his tune, acknowledging that the team will not be able to go all-in this season. Instead, the team will have to do more with less as a result of a brutal salary cap situation from when the team went “all in” the past few years.

“I have been more all in before,” Jones said. “By any definition and I have more all in to make a run back to the line of scrimmage then I’ve been to run for 50 yards. It took more all in to just get back to the line of scrimmage than it did to run for 50 yards. Sometimes that is a bigger challenge. That is really the gist of what we’re about this year. We’ve got to get it done.

“I think that we have been in a situation where we can get it done with lesser. More doesn’t necessarily beat Green Bay. There are other things. Maybe having it better strategically in different spots, but more than necessarily beat them, either. So we’re gonna be asked to do some things different because we got some different players.”

Obviously, this is pretty brutal news for Cowboys fans hoping for the team to be big spenders this offseason, and the NFL world had a lot to say about it on social media.

We’ll have to see how this works out for the Cowboys.
