    Byron Jones just officially announced that he is moving back to corner

    Interesting that they wait until they magically clear a bunch of cap space. Might we be signing some high paid safety now?

    Hmmmm

    Or are we trading to move up and take Derwin James?

    Hmmmm

    If we trade up it better be to get LB Edmunds. Forget James. If we want a proven safety just trade for Earl Thomas.

    Everything I read says the sweet spot in the draft is 22-52, making a trade up idiotic, so of course that is exactly what will happen. The correct move is trade back to 23 with NE and pick up and extra 2nd.

    New England isn't giving us a 2nd to move back from 19 to 23
    This needs to be the final season of Garrett & his staff. The greatest coaches on the planet should be candidates to lead the best org in sports. The days of teams blowing the Cowboys’ doors off in halftime adjustments needs to end. Time for change, new direction and a new voice

    Cowboys expected to pick up Byron Jones’ 2019 option
    Posted by Josh Alper on April 22, 2018, 8:48 AM EDT

    The Cowboys are changing Byron Jones‘ position this year and it looks like they hope to have him at cornerback for at least the next two seasons.

    Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Cowboys are expected to exercise their option on Jones’ contract for the 2019 season. Teams must decide on the fifth-year options for 2015 first-round picks by May 3 and the options are guaranteed for injury only.

    Jones was the 27th overall pick of the 2015 draft and played cornerback and safety as a rookie before moving to the latter position on a full-time basis. He started every game the last two seasons and picked up 130 tackles, two interceptions and two forced fumbles.

    Now he’ll try to thrive at cornerback and make his case for a longer contract in the next couple of years.

    Sooooo, the Cowboys have no one better than Byron to play at corner? Should be an interesting year.

    He'll get a chance to compete for a starting job. Seems like Richards likes him at CB and he has always had an affinity for bigger CB's.

    If he did win the starting CB job we'd potentially have two big CB's that can run (Jones and Awuzie) plus a really high upside slot CB in Lewis, and a young 4th CB with starting experience in Brown.

    Cut bait and admit you made a mistake? Nah, welcome back for one more year at full salary. That's the Jerry way.
