Felix Jones is probably done as a returner... Without a role why is he still on this roster? Jason Garrett needs to answer this question

per ESPN blog:


As a result, the Cowboys could be looking for another kickoff returner this week, following Felix Jones' fumble on the opening kickoff in Sunday’s loss to the Seahawks.

"We’re always looking at personnel, to be honest with you, and when you make a play like that, you look hard again at that and what the alternatives are," Garrett said. "You’ve heard me say up here a lot that you have to have a lot of returner options, because they get taken away from you. And OK, who’s the next guy up? Who can catch this kickoff? Who can catch this punt? So we have a few different guys working at that, and we’ll evaluate that again this week."

So what value does FeJo have left to the Cowboys? He has regressed as a runner. He has never been a good receiver. The only thing he does a half-way decent job at is pass protection. If that is the case there is a slew of of savvy veteran running backs that we could get at the veteran's minimum to be a body on third downs.

Furthermore, in terms of character FeJo has been severely lacking. He shows up to camp out of shape and has generally taken a half-ass approach to this season.

So why is this lazy-good-for-nothing still on the 53 man roster? Why not a hungry young guy like Lance Dunbar, who has shown tons of promise as a returner and as a runner? The team certainly thinks Dunbar is a legit player as he was reportedly being considered to be promoted to the 53 man roster a couple of days before the Giants game.

If Jason Garrett wants to earn respect he would cut FeJo now. That more than anything would earn him respect from the locker room and from us fans, but will Jerry - who is the GM - let him...
