I think Jerry is trying to talk everyone else into it.Jerry's trying to talk himself into it.
"Thomas is not coming here at least for the time being."
I think this is the key takeaway. It's subject to change. And I think that 'change' will be all about what kind of deal that Jerry can get Thomas to sign. If there's an easy out, the people less enthusiastic about signing him will likely feel better about it.
I think that's what Jerry is looking into.
Not sure about that one, but I'll always remember BSPN's 'Professor' John Clayton unequivocally stating that "it will be a while before Terrell Owens signs anywhere". TO signed with the Cowboys the following day.Didn't he say something similar right before signing Owens? He loves to deny with qualifiers.
This echoes what I've thought. Jerry Jones would have to negotiate a cheap deal that the team can easily get out of it things go south. That gives McCarthy the ability to maintain the good locker room he currently has and clearly values. If he has the option to quickly get rid of Thomas I feel he decides to? I think he's likely to get onboard.
