The Cowboys agreed to terms with defensive than DeMarcus Lawrence last week. That came a week after a trade for defensive than Robert Quinn.
The Cowboys still don't know whether defensive than Randy Gregory will be available for the start of the season, but they're hopeful.
Their trade for Quinn, though, had nothing to do with Gregory's indefinite suspension, Cowboy's owner Jerry Jones said. It was merely the opportunity the team couldn't get up, getting a proven pass rusher from the Dolphins for a sixth-round pick in 2020. [Defensive coordinator] Rod Marinelli had everything to do with really making that decision because we We hear about a rotation, and we think about a rotation, ”Jones said. “Forget the uncertainty about Gregory with his availability. I'm positively looking at Gregory as it pertains to our future. I really am. That covers a lot of ground, but I'm pretty positive about that and very comfortable that we've got a good future here. And I think that. I don't know that, but I think we're a good future. Quinn was there and an opportunity for us and a wise decision with Gregory standing there even without the issues and with Lawrence over on the other side. Quinn was an opportunity we couldn't pass up even without that. He gives you those unique skills and gives us a threesome. He's a proven, competitive player. He gives you that.
"With pass rushers, you can get enough of them, but the point is you can never get enough of them. You can never get a chance. So he gave us a chance to do that. It was a unique opportunity. Some of these things, you just have to be ready to grab the train when it comes to. And he does, and not so much about the questions about Gregory, but thats logical. It does make all the sense in the world, but if you could have all three of those guys on any given Sunday. . . At the end of the day, I don't know that there is a more important thing that pressure on the quarterback. ”
Quinn has raised a fist during the national anthem in the past, and the Cowboys have made it clear players won. The protest during the national anthem. They are one of the few teams never to have a player protest during the national anthem.
Jones, though, doesn't expect to be an issue with Quinn.
“We all know where we stand with the Cowboys . It's not a concern of mine, "Jones said.
