Cowboys: No cutbacks during lockout

May, 18, 2011
GRAPEVINE, Texas -- While some teams have laid off employees and cut salaries during the lockout, owner and general manager Jerry Jones said that will not happen with the Cowboys.

Jones said there has been “normal turnover” this offseason and the team has replaced those who have left.

“Each team has its own approach,” Jones said. “Each team has its own need for its off-the-field employees that includes their coaching staff. We, for all practical purposes, the Cowboys, are year-round for 99 percent of the employees that we have. And certainly we have an obligation to our stadium and the events that we’re involved in. When you look at the big picture, our operation and what we’re doing with our employees, it is more dictated by that than it is by the fact that we’re locked out.”
