FLORAL BRANCH, Ga. – The Atlanta Falcons have traded inside linebacker Deion Jones to the Cleveland Browns, the teams announced on Monday. Atlanta will also send its 2024 seventh-round pick to Cleveland in exchange for Cleveland’s 2024 sixth-round pick.
Originally selected in the second round (52nd overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft out of LSU, Jones was in his seventh season in Atlanta. Recorded 650 total tackles (428 solo), 40 tackles for loss, 11 interceptions, 8.5 sacks and five defensive touchdowns throughout his career while earning Pro Bowl honors once in 2018. He has not appeared on the roster active this season after being placed on the IR on September 1st.
Atlanta currently has five inside linebackers on its active roster – Troy Andersen, Rashaan Evans, Nick Kwiatkoski, Nathan Landman and Mykal Walker.
Statement from Atlanta Falcons General Manager Terry Fontenot: “Our goal in every decision is to improve our organization for the long term and we believe today’s agreement does just that. We are constantly evaluating the roster, looking at every situation individual and how we can improve overall, which is a 365 day a year process that all of our football work is focused on. We thank Deion for the impact he has had over his seven seasons in Atlanta and we wish the best to him on his career.”
Most of Jones’ fortune stems from his ownership of the Dallas Cowboys, the National Football League franchise he bought in 1989 for a record $150 million, Jones said. The team is valued based on the August 2022 analysis by valuation consultants Sportico.
