Jones revealed Monday that he's returning to cornerback after spending the past two years at safety, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Former Seattle defensive coordinator Kris Richard is now running Dallas' secondary, bringing along the Seahawks' preference for bigger corners. As a rookie in 2015, the freakishly athletic Jones spent all of his time at cornerback, playing outside as well as the slot. He's fully onboard with Richard's proposed transition.
"I think it'll be a good move for me and the team," Jones said. "It's been something that as soon as Richard came in that's what he was talking about, he wanted to move me to corner. So we had a discussion and he made the move."
It's a different story at safety, though, with a shortage of manpower behind Heath and Frazier.
