Cowboys owner is upset he did not overpay to land Paxton Lynch

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is not happy with how his draft went.  He is kicking himself for not trading up and taking Paxton Lynch.  He said he could not sleep, and admitted he messed up.

“I got to bed about 3 thinking about the Lynch thing, got up at 6 and before the morning was over had talked to six people about how I messed it up,” Jones said Saturday. “I was still mad about it the next morning.”

The Cowboys offered Seattle their second- and third-round picks, but the Seahawks took the Broncos’ first- and third-round selections. Jones’ regret was not sweetening the offer.

“I really have added it up, and you all don’t need philosophy here but … when I look back on my life I’ve overpaid for my big successes every time, and when I’ve tried to get a bargain or get a little cheaper or get a better deal on it, I ended up usually either getting it and not happy I got it or missing [it],” Jones said.

“I probably should have overpaid here.”
