Cowboys weighing Valley Ranch longevity
|Ed Werder joins Richard Durrett and Ian Fitzsimmons to discuss what he took away from the NFL combine and his conversation with Jerry Jones on the penthouse bus. |
“We’re always eyes wide open,” executive vice president Stephen Jones said at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis. “We’re having to do renovations out there. You never know for sure, but I’d still say right now Valley Ranch is where we are.”
Cowboys Stadium was not designed to include the possibility of moving the football operations to Arlington, but building a facility near the stadium is an option, like what the New York Giants have next to MetLife Stadium.
Over the last few years the Cowboys have looked at other team’s facilities, like in Denver and Seattle, when they have played there.
While Valley Ranch is functional, it does not have amenities that most teams have now at the newer facilities, such as a full kitchen. The Cowboys currently cater food for the players and staff.
“You’re always looking to see what people have,” Jones said. “At some point you’d have to take a look.”
