Potential trade sends Cowboys $57 million ex-pro Bowler


The Dallas Cowboys might be a perfect landing spot for LB Deion Jones.

The Dallas Cowboys could be an ideal landing spot for the former Pro Bowler’s $57 million.

As noted before Bleacher Report Alex Ballentine, the Cowboys should target Atlanta Falcons quarterback Dion Jones through a trade early in the season. The 27-year-old Jones is a former Pro Bowl player who has spent his entire career with the Falcons since being drafted into the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Outside the 2018 season — when he was limited to just six games — Jones had done so. Achieve at least 100 treatments In each of its seasons.

Restructured contract makes Jones deal attractive

Ballentine notes that Jones has been a name associated with Cowboys trade rumors in the past, but the move didn’t make sense from a financial perspective. With Jones’ contract restructured in Atlanta, the Cowboys would only owe the veteran back $1.1 million if it were traded in his favour.

“This same deal made him virtually non-tradable, but the club recently agreed to a restructured agreement that added three void years and turned $8.5 million into a bonus,” Ballentine says. “It also means that if a team trades for the linebacker, it would only cost them $1.1 million, says Aaron Freeman of Locked On Falcons.”

The seventh-year full-back is currently in injured reserve with a shoulder injury, but is eligible to return after week four.

Needless to say, Jones could represent a huge upgrade over current rookie Leighton Vander Esch. according to Focus on professional footballJones scored at least a defensive score of 73.7 for three consecutive seasons between 2018 and 2020. However, his game declined significantly during the 2021 campaign, ranking as one of the worst defensive starters in the league with a defensive score of 34.6.

As noted before PFFVander Esch did not send a value higher than a 63.5 defensive score Since his debut campaign for the Pro Bowl in 2018.

Jones’ reunion with his former coach and current Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn could lead to Jones finding his former form in the Pro Bowl—particularly given that he’ll be paired with Defensive Player of the Year winner Micah Parsons.

“Dion Jones’ best days on the field came when Dan Quinn was the head coach for the Atlanta Falcons,” Ballentine says. “He was the main man when Jones finished third in the Rookie of the Year vote in 2016 and won the Pro Bowl in 2017.”

The Cowboys’ defensive core is already loaded with young stars – Parsons and Cornerback Trevon Diggs – Jones’s addition to the mix adds another playmaker to the lineup.

Given that the Hawks are in a position to rebuild extensively and the fact that Jones can be obtained at a bargaining salary, Dallas should put together a commercial offer for the star quarterback.

Cowboys ‘interested’ in extending contract with Prescott

It looks like the Cowboys might be interested in a potential contract extension with Dak Prescott.

Hours after team owner, Jerry Jones, made headlines Noting that Cowboys can have a quarterback controversy On their hands, EVP Stephen Jones reiterated confidence in Prescott as the future Dallas quarterback.
