Dallas Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones said it as emphatically as he could Friday morning: Johnny Manziel is not going to play for the Cowboys.Theres no chance, Jones said on CBS Sports Radios Tiki and Tierney, when asked if the Cowboys would consider signing Manziel. Obviously Johnny needs to get his hands around his life. He needs to do the things that make him a good person off the field, I think, before he can ever be successful in our league.There has been a steady stream of speculation regarding Manziel joining the Cowboys almost since the day the Cleveland Browns released him in March.Manziel grew up in Texas and played at Texas A&M, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has said he wanted to take the former Heisman Trophy winner in the first round of the 2014 draft. Last week, Manziel told TMZ he wanted to play for the Cowboys.After signing with a team, Manziel would have to complete a four-game suspension, which the NFL handed him in June for a violation of the substance-abuse program.Unfortunately, he has some things that are holding him back not only as a football player, but as a person in life, Jones said. We certainly hope he gets his hands around that because hes obviously a guy who has some very unique successes in his life.I hope he is able to get his hands around his life, and at some point if he does, Im sure hell get another chance, but at the moment, it certainly wont be in Dallas.

"It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. Less than 24 hours after the close of the Rio Olympics, Ryan Lochte took a major financial hit Monday for a drunken incident he initially tried to pass off as an armed robbery.In quick succession, four sponsors announced they were dumping the swimmer, who has since apologized and conceded that he embellished what happened during a now-infamous stop at a Rio gas station.Swimsuit company Speedo USA, clothing giant Ralph Lauren and skin-care firm Syneron-Candela issued statements less than three hours apart, all with the same message: Lochte is out. Before the day was done, Japanese mattress maker airweave followed suit, essentially wiping out Lochtes income away from the pool.In addition, Speedo USA said $50,000 that wouldve gone to the 12-time Olympic medalist was being donated to Save The Children to benefit needy youngsters in Brazil.While we have enjoyed a winning relationship with Ryan for over a decade and he has been an important member of the Speedo team, we cannot condone behavior that is counter to the values this brand has long stood for, the prominent swimsuit company said. We appreciate his many achievements and hope he moves forward and learns from this experience.Ralph Lauren, which provided the Polo-branded attire worn by the U.S. team at the opening and closing ceremonies, said it would not be renewing the contract that provided Lochte with financial support leading up to Rio. The statement from airweave said it had a similar arrangement with the swimmer. Both stressed they would continue their support of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic teams.Syneron-Candela offers a line of skin-treatment products that deal with issues such as wrinkle reduction.We hold our employees to high standards, and we expect the same of our business partners, the company said.Lochte issued a statement through his public relations firm thanking Speedo USA for its long support. He did not immediately address the other companies dropping their endorsements.I respect Speedos decision and am grateful for the opportunities that our partnership has afforded me over the years, Lochte said.Initially, Lochte said he and three teammates -- Jack Conger, Gunnar Bentz and Jimmy Feigen -- were robbed after their taxi was pulled over by armed men posing as police just hours after the swimming competition ended in Rio de Janeiro.That version quickly unraveled when police said the swimmers, who had attended a late-night party, never reported the incident to authorities and there was scant evidence of a robbery. Video surveillance emerged showing the athletes getting into a confrontation with armed security guards over alleged vandalism at the gas station when their taxi pulled over to let them use the restroom.While there have been conflicting versions over whether the guards pulled their weapons on the swimmers, Lochte has since acknowledged he was highlly intoxicated and that his behavior led to the confrontation, which resulted in the swimmers paying some $50 in U.dddddddddddd. and Brazilian currency before they were allowed to leave. The incident caused a furor in Rio, where street crime was a major issue heading into the games.Paul Swangard, managing director of the Warsaw Sports Marketing Center at the University of Oregon, said he wasnt surprised by the decision since most of Lochtes marketing value was tied to campaigns prior to the Olympics.I would think it was an easy decision to cut ties now, Swangard said. For someone like Lochte, hes really destroyed almost all of his short-term marketability. Brands can easily seek out other athletes for the next Olympic cycle.The financial costs of losing Speedo and Ralph Lauren are likely to be only the first sanctions that await Lochte, whose antics tarnished a powerful showing by the American team and dominating news away from the stadiums and arenas in the final days of the Rio Games.Both the U.S. Olympic Committee and USA Swimming have indicated that Lochte will be punished, perhaps endangering the 32-year-olds hopes of competing in a fifth Olympics at Tokyo in 2020. He could also face criminal charges in Brazil, where the other swimmers were initially barred from leaving the country until they were interviewed by authorities.Feigen wound up donating just under $11,000 to a Brazilian nonprofit sports organization to settle any potential legal action. Bentz issued a statement saying Lochte tore a sign off a wall at the gas station and got into a heated exchange with the security officers, though Bentz denied the swimmers did any damage to a locked bathroom as authorities alleged.In the last of three interviews with NBC that included ever-changing accounts of the incident, Lochte apologized and acknowledged he over-exaggerated the story. He made a similar mea culpa to Brazils main broadcaster, Globo.Long one of the most popular U.S. athletes, the laid-back swimmer is known for his trademark saying Jeah! and such antics as wearing diamond grillz on the medal stand and dying his hair a silvery color before the Rio Games. Lochte also starred in a short-lived reality television show after the 2012 Olympics.For these games, he qualified in only one individual event, finishing fifth in the 200-meter individual medley, far behind longtime rival Michael Phelps. Lochte did help Phelps and the Americans win gold in the 4x200 freestyle relay.---AP business writers Mae Anderson and Candice Choi in New York and editor Amy Finkelstein in Chicago contributed to this report.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963 .
