Cowboys' Byron Jones: Breakout in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones finished the regular season with 67 tackles and a career-high 14 passes defended.

Secondary coach Kris Richard has a track record of developing long, physical corners, and Jones became his latest success story after spending the first three seasons of his career bouncing between cornerback and safety. The 26-year-old graded out as one of the best CBs in the league according to Pro Football Focus, and he was the very definition of a shutdown corner by not allowing a single touchdown reception in coverage all year. While he doesn't put up great IDP numbers, Jones should combine with Chidobe Awuzie to give Dallas an impressive pair of athletic and impressive young secondary pieces heading into 2019.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones recorded 10 tackles (eight solo) and two passes defensed across 80 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Texans.

Jones played every snap of Sunday's overtime loss to the Texans and was third on the team in tackles. He'll now face Blake Bortles, who committed five turnovers in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Retained for fifth year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys picked up Jones' fifth-year option Sunday, Drew Davison of The Dallas Star-Telegram reports.

This fifth-year option will keep Jones signed through the 2019 season. Jones hasn't missed a game in his first three seasons, and he has had back-to-back, 80-tackle seasons as a safety for the Cowboys. However, the 25-year-old will shift back to cornerback this season and is expected to be a starter.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Making move to corner for 2018 season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones is officially moving over to corner for the 2018 season, Jon Machota of dallasnews.com reports.

It had been speculated for several months that Jones could be headed back to the position he played while at Connecticut. Well, that speculation appears to now be reality as Jones announced he'll be making the switch. "I think it will be a good move for me and the team," Jones said. Entering his fourth season, Jones has started every game in each of the last two seasons.

Cowboys' Byron Jones: Could shift back to corner in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones, who has predominantly played safety the last two seasons, could be moved to cornerback next season, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.

New secondary coach Kris Richard has a track record for preferring corners with size, and Jones would fit the bill. He's also been inconsistent in his time at safety, and by the end of last season he was splitting snaps with Kavon Frazier at the position. A shift back to corner -- the position Jones spent the most time at in his rookie campaign -- wouldn't do his IDP value any favors, but it could strengthen the Cowboys' overall team defense.
