Colts extend lead
About those rumors.............
Word has it that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has his eyes on Bears head coach and Big Sandy, Tex. native Lovie Smith. Under one scenario, the Cowboys would get Smith in exchange for two first-round picks.
Sources close to the Cowboys are convinced Norv Turner will return to Dallas with Bears defensive coordinator Ron Rivera taking the same position with Dallas for a LOT more money.
Rivera desperately wants to be a head coach, and Jones would have to dig into his deep pockets to lure him as an assistant.
I asked Rivera what most appealed to him about the Dallas job, and he told me that Jones' determination to win really impressed him.
