Should Cowboys put in a Waiver Claim for Former Packers S Josh Jones?

The have officially given up on , who they drafted in the second-round of the . Jones is now subject to rules, meaning any team in the NFL can put in a claim in the hopes of acquiring his services. The should be one of those teams.

It was nearly 3 months ago to the day I wrote an article titled “Should Cowboys Consider Trading for Disgruntled Packers S Josh Jones?“, so you know I've had my eye on Jones for a while. He is someone who I believe could come in and be an upgrade at the safety position, whether as a potential starter next to or as a backup. And now that it wouldn't take future draft capital to acquire him, I'm hoping the Dallas Cowboys agree and put in a waiver claim.

Other than Xavier Woods, the Dallas Cowboys couldn't be too happy with their current depth at the safety position. looks like a failed and may barely squeak through roster cuts mostly due to lack of other options. This means will likely reprise his role as a starter opposite Woods this year, but rookie S could have something to say about that.

Wilson has been the one safety who has come close to challenging Jeff Heath this . The Dallas Cowboys however may be reluctant to start a rookie over a veteran they are more comfortable with. But, he could earn the starting job at some point in 2019. All of that isn't a given though, making Josh Jones an intriguing option if they can somehow claim him off of waivers.

Where the Dallas Cowboys fall in the waiver priority is a problem though. There will surely be a team higher than them on the waiver wire to put in a claim for Josh Jones. That however shouldn't prevent the Cowboys at the very least attempting to bring him aboard. There's a chance he could be exactly what they're looking for.

Do you think the Cowboys should put in a waiver claim for Josh Jones?
