The cornerback finished with 17 combined tackles and five passes defended in nine games for the Cowboys in 2019. The team's 2016 sixth-round pick out of Purdue underwent season-ending surgery for a triceps injury in November.
Jones' departure didn't come as a surprise since many expected the Cowboys to prioritize Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper. They placed the exclusive franchise tag on Prescott and agreed to a five-year, $100 million extension with Cooper.
Along with Brown, David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reported Dallas added Maurice Canady on a one-year deal.
Canady will join Brown, Jourdan Lewis and Chidobe Awuzie, so cornerback depth shouldn't be a problem. There's a reason Jones commanded such a significant contract, though.
According to the Dallas Morning News' Calvin Watkins, they showed some interest in Chris Harris Jr., who will sign with the Los Angeles Chargers, per ESPN's Josina Anderson. Their pursuit of Harris would seemingly indicate they're continuing to look for another veteran corner.
In his most recent mock draft, Bleacher Report's Matt Miller projected Dallas to select Florida cornerback CJ Henderson with the No. 17 pick.
