Punter Chris Jones has been with the Cowboys since the 2011 season and he’s now set up to play for the team into a second decade.
According to multiple reports, Jones has signed a contract extension with the team that keeps him signed through the 2021 season. Jones was heading into the final year of a deal he signed with Dallas in 2015 that calls for him to make $1.5 million in salary.
Jones first appeared in a game for Dallas as an injury replacement for Mat McBriar and then a knee injury limited him to four games in 2012, but he’s been the punter in every game for the Cowboys since that point. He has a net average of 40.9 yards per kick and finished eighth in the league in that metric last year.
Jones also made three tackles last year, including a big hit on Lions punt returner Andre Roberts during a Monday night game that went viral on social media.
