Cowboys VP: Don’t be surprised if we change quarterbacks

<p>Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones</p>

Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones spoke at the Little Rock Touchdown Club on Monday. Some highlights via @LRTouchdownClub and â@chase_shannon :

On possibly changing quarterbacks from Brandon Weeden to Matt Cassel: “Don’t be surprised if we think about a quarterback change with Cassel”

On the Cowboys: “I like our football team. Reinforcements are on the way”

On Greg Hardy: We have things in place with the Cowboys to make Greg Hardy a better person and player.

Stephen Jones said his father Jerry wanted him to go to Princeton, where Jason Garrett was the QB — Stephen wanted to be an Arkansas Razorback. Stephen got his wish and graduated from Arkansas in 1988 with a degree in chemical engineering.

On Razorbacks coach Bret Bielema, who is 2-4 this season: “No bigger fan of coach B than myself. Our scouts love what Bret Bielema is doing with his players! I am a huge supporter of his!

On what Jerry has told Stephen: Dad use to tell me “In life you have to be accountable, you have to work for what you want.”
