Jerry Jones has been the owner of the Dallas Cowboys since 1989. He immediately made his mark on the NFL by assembling a dynasty during the 1990s that was able to win 3 Super Bowl titles. Jones would solidify the Cowboys as "America's team" during that time frame. He had players like Deion "Primetime" Sanders, Emmitt Smith, Troy Aikman, and Michael Irvin on his payroll and all of those guys would go on to be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame.

Jones has been known to be a very generous and lenient boss to his current and former players. Most of them do nothing but praise him for the things he's done for them on and off the field when they're asked how they view him. Thursday, starting wide receiver Dez Bryant spoke to a crowd of reporters at training camp about his feelings about his boss being inducted into the Hall of Fame.

"When people counted me out he counted me in.

With that alone, he showed me how much love he had for me. He gave me an opportunity to show who I am, and I will forever respect him for that. He deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. There's no owner, nobody on this earth better than Jerry Jones."

Being inducted into the HOF

After being an owner for almost 30 seasons now, Jerry Jones will be officially inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame this coming Saturday.

Jones took a $140 million investment in the Cowboys and turned them into a billion dollar organization. The worth of the Boys makes them the most valuable sports team in 2017 with a value of $4.2 billion. He uses the the assets of the team to improve the franchise all-around.

Investing in a successful franchise

In 2009, Dallas introduced their current AT&T Stadium, which Jones spent $1.3 billion on to provide fans with the best game experience around the league.

The most unique feature that the stadium included is its humungous Jumbotron television that is reportedly the largest in the world. On opening night that season, the franchise set a league record when 105,121 fans showed up for the game against the New York Giants.

The move proved to be a wise one for Jones as the AT&T Stadium has hosted many big events over the last eight years. The recent investments Jerry has made in the team seem to be paying off and has seemingly helped change the atmosphere in the locker room.

Last season, his Cowboys went 13-3 and had two rookies in Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott that were MVP candidates the entire year. Jerry may have had to face a lot of adversity throughout his career for not punishing his players accordingly, but his actions and efforts have been enough to land him a spot in the NFL Hall of Fame.
