Broncos Plan On Stealing Cowboys Star
The Broncos plan on stealing a Cowboys star, it would appear.
Although retaining quarterback Dak Prescott and wide receiver Amari Cooper is a huge priority this offseason for Dallas, so is keeping key defensive pieces.
Unfortunately for Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, it appears Denver has its eye on All-Pro corner Byron Jones.
The 27-year-old is a free agent this summer and the Broncos are reportedly looking to make a serious bid for his services.
Taken with the 27th overall selection in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Connecticut product became an instant difference-maker. In 2018, he received second-team All-Pro honors.
Given how many free agents the Cowboys have to retain this summer, Jones could find himself as something of an odd man out.
There have been rumblings since the Senior Bowl that CB Byron Jones could be top target for #Broncos in free agency. Worth keeping an eye on as #Cowboys trying to get Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper and perhaps even Jones signed/sealed. @1043TheFan #NFLFreeAgency

Up to this point, the only players that Dallas has explicitly committed to retaining are Prescott and Cooper.
According to Broncos insider Cecil Lammey, the team has been keeping a close eye on Jones as of late.
“There have been rumblings since the Senior Bowl that CB Byron Jones could be top target for Broncos in free agency,” he tweeted out.
“Worth keeping an eye on as Cowboys trying to get Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper and perhaps even Jones signed/sealed.”
Talk of Jones ditching Dallas for Denver brings back memories of DeMarcus Ware doing the same in 2014 after spending nine years in The Big D.
NFL Free Agency officially begins in a little more than a month, on March 18.
At that point everyone will get a clearer picture as to where free agents are heading and what various teams’ priorities are.
