Emmitt is Told He Must Become Backup

The All-Time leading rusher in NFL history has been told, that if he wants to return to the Cowboys next year it will have to be in a backup role.

Smith is scheduled to meet with Jerry Jones next week to discuss the situation, and also to restructure Smiths contract. Bill Parcells has stayed out of the situation and left it up to Jones. If Smith stays with the Cowboys his salary will be cut $755,000.
