That's coming straight from Jerry Jones, the team owner who isn't shy about dishing opinions on his weekly radio show, where he called the idea of releasing the veteran a ridiculous notion, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
"I feel like we are in good shape," Jones said. "That's it on that. Move on."
Hold on a minute, sir.
Felix has struggled so far this season, overshadowed in the backfield by DeMarco Murray and fumbling away the opening kickoff in Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks. His production as a return man has fallen off and coach Jason Garrett says the team is "always looking at personnel," but Jerry's singing a different tune.
"I think we saw him be quick at practice last week. I think we need to give him a little more room out there," Jerry said. "Felix has returned a lot of kickoffs in his time -- All-American twice in college as a kickoff returner. ... He should be a great asset for us. That's the way it remains."
UPDATE: Garrett committed Wednesday to keeping Jones in his role as the team's kick returner, according to The Associated Press.
