Byron Jones introduced himself as a cornerback Monday, via multiple tweets. That means the Cowboys have made the anticipated move with Jones, who spent most of his first three seasons at free safety.

He last played corner in his rookie season of 2015 when he started four games there.

Jones, a first-round pick, played 86.5 percent of the defensive snaps last season, all at safety. The Cowboys, though, reduced his snaps in the final four games last season. Jones has had trouble in run support and has only two career interceptions.

He joins Chidobe Awuzie, Jourdan Lewis and Anthony Brown at corner. Xavier Woods can play corner and safety, and Jeff Heath and Kavon Frazier both play safety.

New secondary coach Kris Richard likes bigger corners, and Jones is 6 foot, 205 pounds. But the Cowboys still are trying to find out what Jones is, which isn’t a good thing considering he’s played three seasons.
