Byron Jones learning to play cornerback all over again

The Cowboys drafted Byron Jones in the first round not knowing exactly where he would fit in their secondary. Three years later, they still aren’t positive what he is.

As a rookie in 2015, Jones started seven games at safety and four games at corner. It’s the last time he played corner in the NFL, having started all 16 games at safety each of the past two seasons.

But new secondary coach Kris Richard has moved Jones back to cornerback. Richard likes bigger corners, and Jones stands 6 feet, weighs 205 pounds and has 32-inch arms. Jones looks the part.

Donovan Mitchell had an outstanding rookie campaign and projects as the primary scorer for the Utah Jazz next season as well. He should only get better.

Arvidsson, together with Nashville Predators teammates Forsberg and defenseman Mattias Ekholm, joined the Swedish team during the tournament after the Predators were eliminated from the NHL playoffs.

“We had the puck a lot,” Arvidsson said. “They did a great job defending.”

Sweden outshot Switzerland 38-27 but could not get the puck past goaltender Leonardo Genoni.

Switzerland finished runner-up for the third time after 2013 and 1935. It has never won.

“We battled hard … all the tournament long,” Switzerland defenseman Mirco Muller said. “Once you look at the bigger picture, it’s huge for Swiss hockey. But right now, there’s a disappointment. We definitely had our chances.”ravens_104
