Cornerback Nate Jones is the latest Cowboys headed for South Beach. Jones, an unrestricted free agent, signed a two-year deal Friday with the Miami Dolphins. Jones, who visited Miami on Thursday and Friday, re-unites with Bill Parcells, now the vice president of football operations with the Dolphins. Parcells drafted Jones in the seventh round in 2004 and valued his intelligence, versatility and special teams play.
Jones will also play again under Cowboys former secondary coach Todd Bowles, who is Miami's assistant head coach and join ex-Cowboys safety and recent signee Keith Davis. Last season Jones was the team's fourth cornerback and key special teams player.
Jones was the last of five Cowboys unrestricted free agents to sign. The only player the Cowboys re-signed was left tackle Flozell Adams. Dallas lost running back Julius Jones (Seattle), safety Keith Davis (Miami) and cornerback Jacques Reeves (Houston). The Cowboys also put the franchise tag on free agent safety Ken Hamlin, who was an unrestricted free agent.
