DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Jerry Jones spent an hour and 20 minutes speaking to reporters at the NFL Combine on Thursday. 

Jones spoke about several things, including that he is "thinking about" a return for Dez Bryant, Dak Prescott's contract, and that he wants Jason Witten to come back in 2020. 

The Cowboys owner also spoke about Robert Quinn's impending free agency, saying the defensive end is “one of the top people — people, players and people — that I’ve ever been associated with. He’s the real deal. ... He really helped us last year. So I’m hopeful that we can do something to keep him,” Jones said, via Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News. 

Quinn could be caught up in a numbers game with the Cowboys having several key free agents to negotiate contracts with. 

For his part, Quinn says he would like to return to the Cowboys this offseason but understands that "it's a business."

"I've never been a free agent before, so it's an interesting process I'm about to go through. We'll just sit back and see what happens," Quinn said in an interview last month with 105.3 The Fan's Mike Fisher.
