Cowboys news: Stephen Jones chimes in on areas of concern on the Cowboys roster

What Are The Cowboys’ Biggest Problem Spots? – David Helman,

Stephen Jones gives us some thoughts on the problem spots on the Cowboys roster.

At this point, it’s common knowledge where the Cowboys’ problem spots stand on the roster. But asked about it more specifically, it’s interesting to note what [Stephen Jones] highlighted as areas of concern moving toward the start of the league year.

“We have three of our four safeties, in terms of play time last year – they’re up for contract,” he said. “We have the defensive line group with D.A. and Randy Gregory, that’s certainly something that comes to mind.”

That trio of safeties commands a lot of attention. Jayron Kearse is the obvious headliner after leading the team in tackles and calling plays on defense in his first year with the team.

Gregory draws a ton of attention after posting six sacks last season, but it’s worth remembering that Dorance Armstrong finished just behind him with five of his own. Factor in the uncertainty surrounding DeMarcus Lawrence, and the prospects for both pass rushers could have a serious effect on the defensive end position.
