Defensive end Kony Ealy moved from the Panthers to the Patriots to the Jets before the start of the 2017 season and he could be on the move again as a free agent this offseason.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Ealy is scheduled to visit with the Cowboys this week. It’s the first reported visit for Ealy and Rapoport adds that the Jets have talked to him about returning for a second season with the team.

Ealy played just over 40 percent of the defensive snaps for the Jets last season and had 14 tackles, a sack and an interception while starting four of the 15 games he played. Ealy also knocked down nine passes over the course of the year.

Ealy was a 2014 second-round pick of the Panthers and was traded to the Patriots last offseason. He was claimed off of waivers by the Jets after being waived in August.

  1. i am surprised jon robinson vrabel and the titans havnt given this guy a look..altho they lost he was dominant for carolina in the super bowl

  2. I know the Cowboys liked him coming out of college but took DeMarcus Lawrence instead. He would be a good add. A bit surprised he hasn’t got more visits.

    They will deny it

  4. Ealy is a 43 DE or 3tech, he was out of place in both the Patriot and jet 34 defenses–although you have to admire the production with limited snaps–he can be a very good situational rusher and solid 1st and 2nd down player. If money is good, this is a good get.

    They cant though. They all said that getting a chance to kick the tires on Ealy for nothing more than to move a few positions back in the crap shoot session of the draft was a wonderful risk vs reward gamble. In fact, if you dont count trolls using hindsight like they were smart or something everyone still agrees that was at the time a really smart gamble.

  6. Kony supposedly has talent ..but when you show up for
    your conditioning test for a new team with the best Coach
    in the NFL …Bill Belichick ..it is best not to fail your conditioning
    test. Hopefully he has realized that to be a successful teammate,
    contributor one has to work hard in offseason, get in shape,
    and not collapse at at the initial conditioning test.
    His lack of work ethic is a concern. Imagine you are a high
    draft pick…you get traded to a team that competes for the Super
    Bowl on a yearly basis and you flunk your first test ..your first
    chance to impress your new team.
    It must have just continued to go down hill..hence his release and
    his average play.

    Umm… the dude was a nice addition to the Jets last year because they knew how to utilize his talent even though he didn’t fit their defensive scheme exactly. In fact, the Pats coulda used his Pass Defense capabilities in that big game last season.
