Jerry Jones And Jay Ratliff Player Get Into Heated Altercation

Jerry Jones And Jay Ratliff Player Get Into Heated Altercation
Sports

Professional athletes live and die for the game that they play. They put their bodies at tremendous risk every time they go out and perform for us the fans and the one thing they never want to hear is that they are giving their all.

Well Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has never been a shy one when it comes to calling out players or coaches and it looks as if he did it to one of his best defensive lineman, Jay Ratliff.

About 2 weeks ago after the game against the Eagles, Jerry Jones came into the locker room and told Ratliff that the cowboys needed him and that sent the often injured lineman into a craze as he ended up storming out the locker room. The Vice President of the Cowboys Stephen Jones said the altercation was, “no big deal.”

Though Head Coach Jason Garrett had this to say, “I don’t want to get into any specifics about a situation like that,” Garrett said. “ I do know this: Jay Ratliff loves to play football. He loves to be out there. He loves to compete. I think he loves his teammates and this team. And if he was able to play, he’d be out there playing.”

The Cowboys are in trouble at the nose-tackle spot as they have started their third one this season while Ratliff has been out most of the year. Ratliff signed a five-year extension worth $40 million in 2011, with $17.5 million in guarantees. He is scheduled to count $7 million against the 2013 cap. Jones is probably worried about his investment at the moment.
