Jerry Jones having an interest in Deion Sanders' Colorado football-playing sons, safety Shilo Sanders and, more relevantly, quarterback Shedeur Sanders, means the Dallas Cowboys' Dak Prescott era could be coming to an end soon.

"It only seems fitting to have both Sanders brothers back where they grew up and where their father made an impact in his playing career," BuffsBeat's Josh Tolle prefaced befoe saying, "If that were to happen, we would witness the end of the Dak Prescott era for the Cowboys."

Jones has long admired Coach Prime from his playing days in Dallas, but he's also had quite a bit of crossover when it comes to prospective coaching candidates for the Cowboys and Sanders' Buffs.

Cowboys may have hired Colorado football DC candidate, definitely interviewed two

Jones interviewed two Colorado defensive coordinator candidates for his Cowboys vacancy at defensive coordinator; one created by Dan Quinn's hiring to be the Washington Commanders' head coach. One of them was Mike Zimmer, who was reportedly hired after Jones meddled in the hiring process to make it happen. The other was Rex Ryan, who claimed that Zimmer hasn't actually been hired yet.

“I can honestly say right here, first off, I’m not so sure that Zimmer’s got that job right now. Not real sure about that,” Ryan said (h/t The New York Post). “I can honestly say I don’t believe that’s a fact right now.

“But I would say this: The reason I’ve been out for seven years, I’ve never called another head coach or anything like that, but I called Mike McCarthy. “The reason I did is because I want to be on this stage [at the Super Bowl] if I’m going to get back into coaching. I think with this roster the way it is, I think offensively, special teams, and defense — I figured I can make a little bit of an upgrade — that they can be right here. That’s why I was interested.”

Evidently, Jones and Sanders think alike when it comes to coaching tastes. You wonder if that will be relevant again one day when Coach Prime's are in the NFL. And possibly on the Cowboys.
