Cowboys: Michael Gallup admits Jerry Jones’ hands-on relationship makes him nervous, but thankful

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup spoke to FanSided’s Mark Carman about his relationship with team owner Jerry Jones.

The Dallas Cowboys looked poised to make a deep run in the playoffs, with owner Jerry Jones’ ultimate goal of being them competing in Super Bowl 56. Their run in the playoffs was a short one, as they were eliminated by the San Francisco 49ers in the Wild Card Round. This offseason will be an interesting one for the Cowboys, especially to see what Jones may do in hopes of making the team better.

One of Dallas’ impending free agents, wide receiver Michael Gallup, spoke to FanSided’s Mark Carman and described his relationship with Jones, who the wideout says is hands-on.

“He’s always in the locker room,” Gallup told FanSided’s Mark Carman, starting at the 5:25 mark in the video linked above. “He comes in and shakes everyone’s hand before and after the games. We talk a little bit, not a whole lot. Your heart starts beating a little bit when the owner of the team comes and wants to say something to you, but I think we have a good relationship.”

Gallup was selected by the Cowboys in the third-round of the 2018 NFL Draft out of Colorado State. After starting 8-of-16 games in his rookie year, Gallup shined in his second season in Dallas, as he recorded 1,107 yards and six touchdowns on 66 receptions.

This season, Gallup suffered a torn ACL in Dallas’ Week 17 game against the Arizona Cardinals while scoring a touchdown. The injury happened just before the playoffs. In nine games, Gallup recorded 35 receptions for 445 yards and two touchdowns.

As Gallup mentions earlier in the video linked above, he was set to undergo surgery to repair his ACL the day after the interview.

Gallup is set to hit free agency in what is a crowded wide receiver class. It will be interesting to see what kind of offers Gallup will receive from teams. Of course, Jones and the Cowboys can never be ruled out in free agency, even if they are approximately $21.2 million over the cap, per Spotrac.
