4 trades that could make the Cowboys contenders in 2022
1. Deion Jones, LB Atlanta Falcons
Dan Quinn and this defense need another linebacker, especially with Devante Bond sustaining a season-ending knee injury during OTAs. Deion Jones has a successful on-the-field history, and at the moment, the options are only Leighton Vander Esch and Jabril Cox.
Both have injury concerns and with the rest of the linebackers on the roster having barely any playing time (or none at all), they need to get some insurance. Jones would be that insurance. He’s already been a part of Quinn’s defense so he wouldn’t need a lot of time to get acclimated to the new scheme. He’d also bring the speed that the Cowboys desire at the position along with cover ability potentially making him and Micah Parsons a very good duo.
Thankfully for the frugal Joneses, this linebacker would come at a cheap price with everyone knowing that the Atlanta Falcons are willing to move on from him along with him coming off an injury that could drive down his value. This move out of them all makes the most sense. The Joneses are always talking about still making moves. Will they make any more before preseason?
