Julio Jones should not be on the Dallas Cowboys radar

2. Can’t meet the dollar

Owner Jerry Jones just put a large amount of money into Dak. Not to mention investing heavily in their offensive line and some key players on defense. That leaves little wiggle room to add talent, never mind star talent.

With a cap hit of $23 million this season and $19.2 million the next two seasons, I highly doubt Jerry can make Julio Jones fit. There are many big contracts the team must eat up.

Dallas’ top-51 cap hit increases from $201 million this season to $205 million next season. Three players take up $20+ million and one more taking up $10+ million in cap space this season. That increases to one $30+ million player, three $20+ million players, and four $10+ million players.

Adding Jones would mean one more big contract for the team to manage. He would be the second-highest cap hit this season and almost another $20+ million contract next season.
