Cowboys Re-Sign DL Caraun Reid, Place DT Datone Jones On IR


The Dallas Cowboys are re-signing DL Caraun Reid to a contract on Tuesday, according to his agent Mike McCartney.

David Moore adds that the Cowboys have placed DT Datone Jones on injured reserve.

Reid, 26, is a former fifth-round pick of the Lions back in 2014. He lasted just over two years in Detroit before he was waived at the start of the 2016 season and later claimed off of waivers by the Chargers.

Unfortunately, Reid suffered a season-ending ACL tear in 2016 and was placed on injured reserve. The Chargers elected to cut him loose coming out of the preseason and he had brief stints with the Lions, Redskins and Colts before signing on with the Cowboys during the preseason.

Dallas elected to waive Reid as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players.

In 2016, Reid appeared in seven games for the Chargers and recorded five tackles, one sack, a fumble recovery returned for a touchdown and a pass defense.

Jones, 28, was taken with the No. 26 overall pick back in 2013. He played out the final year of his four-year, $7.71 million rookie contract but the Packers declined to pick up Jones’ fifth-year option for the 2017 season.

Minnesota signed him to a one-year, $3.75 million deal last year but he was, unfortunately, placed on injured reserve and later released with a settlement. After brief stints with the Lions and 49ers, Jones signed on with the Cowboys and finished out the year in Dallas.

In 2017, Jones has appeared in three games and recorded six tackles and no sacks.
