Stewart beat out Todd Bowles, who will remain as the Cowboys secondary coach.
Stewart and Bowles spoke Sunday night about the Cowboys' defensive personnel.
Finally, let's put this thing to bed and move on. Free agency is right around the corner.
Jerry Jones talked a little about free agency - mainly about signing our own - in a conversation with Todd Archer. He said they're working on Marc Colombo, and even though Tony Romo is not a free agent, they have discussed extending his contract. He also answered some obligatory Terrell Owens questions and commented that he learned some important things from Bill Parcells that he will continue to use even after the Tuna's departure.
But here is what I was most interested in hearing:
Maybe I'm reading too much into that but Jerry sounds less than confident that Rivera will be back. Jerry may use the injury as an excuse to release Rivera or nudge him into retirement - notice the comment about it being Rivera's decision, too. Either way, he basically said they can't count on him right now, which makes me think they are executing a plan to replace him. Of course, I've been begging for a change at RG since the end of the season, so maybe it's just wishful thinking.
He's also counting on Greg Ellis' full return, and if you're thinking we might be going after a WR early in the draft, think again.
And by the way, if you just happen to be a NFL prospect stuck in Dallas due to weather, be sure to hitch a ride on Double J Airlines.
The Cowboys' owner and general manager had his plane, which was scheduled to leave Dallas for Indianapolis anyway to pick up some assistant coaches, fly Goldson and Jackson to town so they could work out.
