Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was very close to selecting Johnny Manziel in the NFL Draft. Now he's been told to stop talking about the Browns rookie.

Jones was asked about his near-decision to take Manziel after the Cowboys' win on Sunday.

"Well, I don't know how that's relevant," said Jones, who turned 72 on Monday. "I'm really not so sure I'm ready to admit a mis-thought. It is not relevant, and I really have had some very stern, succinct instructions not to mention Johnny anymore from people who count. Let me put it like that."

Now we all get to wonder who the "people who count" are that told Jerry to stop talking about his spring fling.
