Multiple Teams Eyeing Byron Jones Ahead of Free Agency


The Dallas Cowboys will be met with multiple difficult decisions as free agency approaches. How much will be awarded to Dak Prescott? Does Amari Cooper get franchise tagged?

However, another player is catching the attention of multiple franchises in need of defensive help. Byron Jones, 27, is currently gaining interest from multiple teams if he hits the free agency market.

According to sources around the NFL, Jones is likely to command more than $15M on an annual basis in the open market. The listed suitors include the Detroit Lions, New York Jets, New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles.

With strong enough interest, we could see Jones become the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL. This comes after a season in which Jones totaled a career-low 46 tackles across 15 games.

Dallas currently holds the fifth-most cap space in the NFL, but have not made significant progress towards an extension for the 2015 former first-round pick.
