Byron Jones drawing interest from four teams to start free agency

The NFL free agency frenzy has officially begun and the interest from teams in Dallas Cowboys cornerback Byron Jones is heavy.

According to Josina Anderson of ESPN, the Miami Dolphins, New York Jets, Las Vegas Raiders, and Philadelphia Eagles are among the teams interesting in signing Harris.

Jones is considered as being the top cornerback available in free agency. With the NFL allowing teams to use only one tag, it became much more difficult for the Cowboys to retain him. They ended up using the franchise tag on Dak Prescott and still need to re-sign Amari Cooper.

It remains unlikely that the Cowboys will be able to retain Jones given their salary cap restraints. However, that doesn’t mean they won’t try as hard as possible to overcome that obstacle.

Teams that do have the necessary cap space to make an aggressive run at Jones should look to act fast. The best approach for those organizations is to come out with an offer he can’t refuse before the Cowboys can execute their proper order of operations.

The Cowboys will need to likely turn to the 2020 NFL Draft to help fill the void left behind by Jones’ departure if that ends up being the outcome of his free agency. Regardless, the worst case outcome is losing Jones to their NFC East arch-rival, the Eagles.

The rest of the NFL free agency dominoes are expected to fall once top players at their position like Byron Jones sign with a team. It just remains unclear which team he will end up joining.
