Jerry Jones not thinking QB heading into draft

Jerry Jones not thinking QB heading into draft

IRVING, Texas (AP) Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones isn't looking to draft a quarterback - Johnny Manziel or otherwise.

Jones said Tuesday that the team's "best shot is a healthy Tony Romo." The draft starts Thursday night.

The Dallas quarterback just turned 34 and is coming off two back surgeries, the last for a herniated disk sustained against Washington that knocked him out of a playoffs-or-bust loss to Philadelphia in the season finale.

Jones says the odds of winning with a rookie quarterback are nothing to get excited about. The owner also says 2014 "isn't rebuilding time" with the Cowboys trying to end a four-year playoff drought in the final season of coach Jason Garrett's contract.
