Relationships within the Cowboys’ organization have reportedly become strenuous.

New reports indicate that owner Jerry Jones and Head Coach Mike McCarthy do not agree on anything leading into the 2024-25 season.

The Cowboys are coming off an impressive regular season that saw the team finish with a 12-5 record, win the NFC East division, and secure the second overall seed in the NFC playoffs.

However, an embarrassing 48-32 loss to the Green Bay Packers in the wild-card round and an uneventful offseason have reportedly created tension throughout the organization.

Jones and McCarthy reportedly have a tumultuous relationship, with McCarthy feeling that Jones undermines him at times and puts him in situations that set him up to fail.

“Some of the people I’ve talked to have said that he’s getting fed up with it a little bit… It’s hard. I feel bad for Dak. I think Dak’s a really good quarterback who is capable of taking a team to the Super Bowl. He’s got to overcome a lot of things,” said a former member of the Cowboys personnel team, per Fansided.

Another major issue has arisen regarding McCarthy’s contract, as he is entering the final year and does not have any guarantee of long-term job security.

The same member of the Cowboys personnel team said Jones should have met McCarthy in the middle with a short-term extension, which would have allowed him to have slightly more influence on the players.

“At least give him a one-year extension. You may not have to give him another five years, but at least extend them out one year and extend out all the coaches one year to give them a level of security,” he said, per Fansided.

McCarthy helped lead the Packers to a Super Bowl in 2010 and has been in Dallas since signing a contract in 2020.

During this time, he led the organization to a regular-season record of 42-25, which is the highest career win percentage for a coach in the Cowboys’ history, according to CBS Sports.

Despite finding success in the regular season, McCarthy has led the Cowboys to a record of just 1-3 in the playoffs, per StatMuse.

Regardless of whether Jones and McCarthy can work out some of these reported issues, the team will still have to begin evaluating which players should be extended over the next year.

Quarterback Dak Prescott is eligible to sign an extension with Dallas this offseason. However, contracts signed by other quarterbacks have made many wonder whether the Cowboys will pull the trigger with Prescott before next offseason, as previously reported by The Dallas Express.

Similarly, the team will have to begin working on contract extensions with wide receiver Ceedee Lamb and linebacker Micah Parson, who are each coming off incredible seasons and will likely be paid as two of the top players at their positions.
