    Cowboys Expected to Pick Up Byron Jones’ Fifth-Year Option

    2018 should be a huge year for the Cowboys' 2015 first-round pick Bryon Jones. After being used all over the , it seems like he'll finally find a position to stay next season. The announcement was made that heading into his contract year, Jones would be moved to the cornerback position full-time.

    Fortunately for him, the Cowboys are now expected to pick up his fifth-year option. This may come as a surprise for , given there haven't been any hints by the franchise to do so. However, it definitely will be a wise decision.

    Since he played most of his snaps as a in 2017 (his third year in the league), Byron's fifth-option will be less expensive than one from a cornerback. This is obviously good news for the since it means more cap space will be available in 2019.

    Hopefully, Byron finds success under the new secondary coach in Dallas, . With him moving to cornerback full-time, we might just see his incredible athleticism translate into consistent impact on the field.

    Jones has a ton of talent but bouncing from one position to another is not good for player progression. Heck, we talk about how hard it is for many talented prospects to come into the NFL and adapt, now imagine a player who's played in different spots in the secondary all through his first three years.

    If #31 becomes a quality starting cornerback in 2018, the CB room will be loaded in Dallas.

    and showed us they could become the next great CB duo for the Cowboys in their rookie seasons. had a rough 2017, but can still play at a decent level if he's not asked to be CB1.

    Add Byron Jones to the mix, and Cowboys Nation should be really comfortable with how this position will look next season.

    Picking Byron's fifth-year option will be a wise decision for Dallas, and Cowboys fans should be happy about it. Let's go!

    Friggin’ Outstanding!

    Mr. Jaguar

    Coach Richard will be the defensive coach the Cowboys organization been missing for the past 22 years.
    Finally, the Cowboys organization done the right thing by hiring this young man , who is not afraid to incorporate college defensive schemes to combat the spread offense concepts of the NFL.
    Outstanding hire. Just my two cents worth.
