Free agent defensive lineman Kony Ealy has a visit with the Cowboys scheduled.
Kony only put up 14 tackles and 1 sack in a rotation role with the Jets, but he did his hands on passing attempts an unusual number of times. He ended 2017 with 9 passes defensed and 1 interception. This probably was an aberration as Ealy had only 5 passes defensed in the rest of his career combined. He also wasn’t consistent. All 9 of those defensed passes and the interception came before the Jets’ bye.
Like many players available, I don’t have terribly strong feelings either way about Ealy. The Jets could probably do worse for a rotational guy, but he wouldn’t be a franchise-changing loss if he left for greener pastures.
