Jerry Jones Wants LeBron James to Play Tight End For Dallas Cowboys

In case you don’t know by now, Dallas Cowboys‘ owner Jerry Jones is a bit crazy. He has been the subject of much criticism as the owner of ‘America’s team’ and for good reason. Jones was a very successful owner back in the 1990s and has since been quieted by years of being championship-less. What also gets Cowboys fans fired up is the fact that he makes some bonehead decisions like paying players more than they should be paid or just going after questionable free agents.

If you haven’t been paying attention to the sports channels in the past few days, you probably don’t know that NBA and Miami Heat superstar LeBron James attended the Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants game. He made friends with owner Jerry Jones, head coach Jason Garrett and former wrestling star Hulk Hogan along the way.

Seeing as James is the newest fan of the Cowboys, Jones seems to like the set of skills that the superstar possesses. James is a 6-foot-8, 250-pound physical specimen that looks to have the body to play in the NFL. In fact, he is so NFL-ready that Jones would like to have James play for his team.

In a recent radio interview, Jones said that he wish he could suit James up every Sunday on his team. When the radio host asked which position he would play, Jones simply replied ‘tight end’. Yes, I understand Jones isn’t offering LeBron a contract, but I’m sure if King James came calling, Jones would run him out there for ticket sales and media attention — what a shocker.
