Cowboys 2015 first-round draft pick Byron Jones is switching positions — again.
Jones revealed Monday that he’s returning to cornerback after spending the past two years at safety, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
It’s a different story at safety, though, with a shortage of manpower behind Heath and Frazier.
In other words, Jones’ position switch will do nothing to quiet speculation of a potential draft-weekend trade for Seahawks All-Pro Earl Thomas , a Texas native who finished last season with a plea for the Cowboys to pursue him .
According to ESPN, thirty-four helmets were tested for safety, and 10 helmets that finished at the bottom of the rankings were listed as prohibited. Six of those models will be prohibited immediately, and four more will be phased out by the 2019 season. The banned models are manufactured by Rawlings, Riddell, Schutt, and SG. Rawlings helmets were prohibited because the company stopped making helmets more than two years ago and doesn’t offer support in that area.

Mike McCray has all of the thump and toughness that teams hope to get from a true inside linebacker. However, his athleticism is limited and may force him off the field on third downs. He looks like an unnatural mover struggling to reach the top speed needed to compete. McCray is best as an inside backer who isn’t the primary coverage guy on the field and can instead use mental processing and power to be a productive player.
He hasn’t allowed more than two runs in any of his three starts.
