Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on Odell Beckham Jr. decision: ‘On hold’


The Dallas Cowboys apparently decided to move on from Odell Beckham Jr., but this week Jerry Jones seemed to hint that the team still has some level of interest in the free-agent wide receiver.

Jones said any potential Beckham signing would happen sooner rather than later.

When Jones was asked about the timeline for a possible signing, he replied: “I don’t want to talk about it, but wait… This could break,” he said as the NFL owners’ meetings wrapped up Tuesday in Dallas.

The longtime Cowboys owner acknowledged that Beckham was still working toward a full recovery. Beckham suffered a torn ACL in his left knee that he suffered in February during the Super Bowl.

Jones said having great players on a roster is always important.

“Great players make great plays. Great players make exceptional plays,” Jones said. “So I hope we move forward here where a handful of big plays, if I may, could be the difference in a world championship.”

Although Jones reiterated his interest in Beckham, the team decided to add a different veteran wide receiver to the roster earlier this week.

TY Hilton agreed to a one-year contract with Dallas on Monday that guarantees him $600,000 for the rest of the season.

“I think it can help. Now [this week against Jacksonville]” Jones said. “He came in really fit. And he has all that experience.”

Hilton practiced for the first time on Wednesday and said she has spent 10 hours a day the past two days at The Star learning the system.

“I got a lot of calls,” Hilton said. “I told my agent if I get the right call, the right team, the right situation, I’m interested. I feel like this is the right situation for me.” The four-time Pro-Bowl hideout added that she is healthy after returning from neck surgery last season.
