Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones made waves around the NFL world on Tuesday when he poked fun at his son/fellow executive, Stephen Jones.

The elder Jones has always been one of the most hands-on owners in the league. And during a press conference earlier this afternoon, he made sure everyone knows who's boss.

"Our process is an inclusive one. There's a lot of talk in this business about who makes the call," Jones said when asked what goes into the Cowboys' selection process. "Taco [Charlton] was Stephen's call. Parson's was my call."

These statements were made in a playful manner -- resulting in a huge laugh from the press room.

"That's not that funny to me," Stephen responded with a smile.

Charlton, the Cowboys' No. 28 overall pick in the 2017 draft, was a major bust for the Dallas organization -- logging just 4.0 sacks and seven starts during his two-year stint. Parsons, the No. 12 overall pick in 2021, went on to win Defensive Rookie of the Year.

The Cowboys currently hold the No. 24 overall pick in this week's draft. And just like every year, Jerry Jones will heavily influence the final decision.
