Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has the brain of a 40-year old. 

This was the latest finding based on a CAT scan when the 70-year-old Jones visited his doctor, per the Dallas Morning News' Rainer Sabin. Jones said the person who conducted the scan was impressed with the results.

"I've been told that I have, by CAT scans, that it's like the brain of a 40-year-old. The guy really did not know it was me. I was there anonymously. He said,'And so I just wanted to come down. I saw your chart. I know how old you are. That part is really impressive.'

"I know more about what I'm doing than hopefully I did 25 years ago."

At his age, it's pretty evident Jones' sharp mental health manifests itself in his business accumen. Over the summer, he's made some deals which grabbed headlines. 

The first one was the selling the naming rights of the then-Cowboys Stadium to telecommunications company AT&T on July 25. The end result saw the Cowboys' home turf being renamed AT&T stadium. 

Next was moving the the Cowboys' headquarters to Frisco, Tex. on August 13 along with building a brand new 12,000-seat practice facility which will sit on 20 acres of land. A world headquarters for the team will cover an estimated five acres.   

Fox Sports Southwest's Keith Whitmire writes both deals "should pay dividends for the team's bottom line for years to come." 

Cowboys fans can only hope their owner's tip-top mental health can also tranlsate to more wins on the football field, as Dallas has won just two playoff games since winning the Super Bowl in 1996. 

Jones has been the owner of the Dallas Cowboys since 1989.
