The Cowboys corner will be a free agent after this season. How much is he worth?
Once the Dallas Cowboys decided to move Byron Jones back to corner on a permanent basis in 2018, his career took off. A first-round pick in 2015, Jones had started out as a corner but was shifted over to safety where he stayed for a few years. His time at safety was marked by inconsistency as his instincts and skill-set never quite matched up to the position. Kris Richard took one look at his size and skill-set and knew that corner was the place for Jones in his defensive secondary. It turned out to be the right move.
Jones had a Pro Bowl year in 2018. The first two thirds or so of the season he was playing among the best cornerbacks in the league. The final third saw his play drop off a little as he started to give up more catches and touchdowns, while accumulating penalties. Turns out Jones had picked up an injury that was affecting his play.
