Cornerback Nate Jones could be the next Cowboy leaving the team. Jones, an unrestricted free agent, visited Minnesota on Wednesday and left without signing. Now, he will meet with the Miami Dolphins on Thursday.
Jones' agent said there are a couple of other teams they are considering. Jones is trying to make sure from teams exactly what his role would be. He was the fourth corner in Dallas this year and there remains a possibility he could return. Jones showed some value as a playmaker on blitzes, which included a knockout hit on Brett Favre at Texas Stadium.
Jones might also be the next Cowboy bound for South Beach. Bill Parcells always loved his smarts and special teams value.
