DALLAS – Cowboys vice-president Stephen Jones said he was waiting for more information before discussing cornerback Kelvin Joseph’s connection to a murder investigation.
Joseph, through an attorney, admitted he was in an SUV involved in a fatal drive-by shooting last month on Lower Greenville Avenue in Dallas. Cameron Ray was killed.
Two men surrendered after Joseph met with detectives.

Jones was asked on sports radio station 105.3 The Fan about the importance of signing players with character.
“You go into that with every player, and you certainly give notes on their character risk. And we go in depth, I would say at least 25% of the report is based on the character of the guy – football character, personal character — on and off the field. All the things that a football player will look like and what you project him to be when he comes into the NFL,” Jones said.
Joseph was not charged with a crime.
Jones said Joseph is working with the team as the investigation continues.
