Michael Irvin, the Cowboys Hall of Fame wide receiver turned NFL Network broadcaster, made some headlines on Friday when he said on Boston radio station WEEI that "some very significant people" told him the Cowboys may pursue Tom Brady in free agency.

A day later, Irvin tried to calm the storm those comments created.

Irvin wrote on Twitter that the "very significant people" who told him about the Cowboys' interest on Brady did not include Cowboys owner and General Manager Jerry Jones, or anyone else associated with the team.

"I never said Jerry or anyone in the organization said this to me. It was NOT anyone with the Dallas Cowboys," Irvin wrote.

The idea behind the Cowboys going after Brady would be that they would first put the franchise tag on Dak Prescott, and then either trade him or let some other team sign him to an offer sheet that the Cowboys wouldn't match. Then the Cowboys would go after Brady.

It's farfetched, and it seems likely that the "significant people" Irvin talked to were merely spitballing, not describing a move that's actually going to happen.

Tim Flynn was looking forward to one final year as the mayoral host of training camp for the Dallas Cowboys in Oxnard, California. The pandemic forced the NFL to abandon, at least for this year, the fading but still time-honored tradition of teams traveling to training camp. The league's version of a stay-at-home order will end the latest California run for the Cowboys, stop the 54-year streak for the Pittsburgh Steelers in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, and keep the Carolina Panthers away from the only campsite the 25-year-old franchise has known.
