14. Byron Jones, Miami Dolphins
Jones matched his interception total across the first five seasons of his career last year with Miami, but it was his worst season from a production allowed standpoint since making the switch to cornerback in 2018.
This almost always seems to be the rule and not the exception. You pay King of the Hill bags of money to a corner your front office didn’t draft and you are gasping for relief once he breaks the top 20...we did it!
He’s basically a politician in pads and cleats. The investor goes all in on his smoke & mirrors.
Now we are stuck in a position where the corner we actually picked ourselves and said hey, come begin your career with us, is performing at a significantly better rate than the out of town, over paid mercenary guy who just joined the team. That won’t cause any friction when X’s agent gets to go crazy on contract details.
I never liked the Jones signing. Too much of a Pandora’s box. I loathe the idea of overpaying defensive wide receivers.
