1. Byron Jones, CB
Jones' NFL downfall is a sad one.
After five seasons with the Cowboys, culminating in a Pro Bowl appearance and second-team All-Pro nod in 2018, Jones never lived up to the five-year, $82.5 million contract he signed with the Dolphins following the 2019 season. The deal included $40 million guaranteed and $54 million gauranteed over the first three years.
While Jones played 30 of a possible 33 games over his first two seasons in Miami, he wasn't close to shutdown corner he was with Dallas. According to PFF, the former first-round pick allowed a 104.3 QB rating when targeted, 14.6 yards per reception and eight touchdowns.
Jones didn't play at all in 2022 due to complications stemming from offseason Achilles surgery. Right after the season ended Jones tweeted he can't "run or jump" because of injuries he sustained and "injections" he received throughout his career. Before long, the Dolphins released him with a post-June 1 designation.
The post imitated Jones was headed for retirement, but the 30-year-old hasn't made an official announcement. It was also reported Jones had no plans of retiring, but it's hard to envision a team throwing a flier on him after he admitted he can't perform the fundamental physical skills required to play the sport.
