Interesting Cowboys nugget from Mort

Just spent a few minutes on the phone with ESPN's Chris Mortensen, who shared an interesting Felix Jones nugget. Mortensen is very familiar with all things Felix because his son plays quarterback for the University of Arkansas.

Mort said that the Cardinals almost took Jones with the No. 16 pick overall before deciding to take Tennessee State cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. The two players will square off Sunday in Glendale, Ariz.

Rodgers-Cromartie is currently the nickel corner for the Cardinals. It looks like former Eagles cornerback Rod Hood will be matched up with Terrell Owens for most of the game. And I'm sure he'll take a page out the Redskins game plan and jam T.O. at the line of scrimmage. I'm anxious to see how that works out.
