Cowboys’ Jerry Jones jokes that Taco Charlton selection was his son’s idea; Saints DE fires back with response

Jerry Jones has done well in the draft over the last few years, particularly in the first round. Like many general managers, Jones does have his misses, too — the most egregious being Taco Charlton in the first round of the 2017 draft.

Charlton, who now plays for the New Orleans Saints, didn’t exactly find the comment funny. But he had a great response to Jones via social media hours later, using a meme to essentially say, “Thanks for the cash.”

His stint with the Cowboys was one of the shortest for a first-round draft choice by the team in franchise history. Charlton has bounced around the league since, playing for the Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs, and Pittsburgh Steelers.
