The contract standoff between the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs and defensive tackle Chris Jones continues, and according to a recently released report, the Dallas Cowboys are one of three teams that are interested in bringing him aboard. 

Jones, who has stated that he's willing to sit out up to half of the season, has been listed by Brad Gagnon of Bleacher Report as one of the destinations that makes the most sense for Jones if he's unable to get things worked out with the Chiefs.

He wrote the following: 

"This has a non-zero chance of biting the Chiefs in the behind if they end up facing the Dallas Cowboys in Super Bowl LVIII, but few teams will realistically deal for Jones without believing it’ll make them a prime contender and at least Dallas resides in the other conference.

And yes, the Cowboys already have Micah Parsons, DeMarcus Lawrence and first-round rookie Mazi Smith in the front seven, but imagine what Jones at his best could do for a team that is realistically in Super Bowl-or-bust mode?

Yeah, it’s now or never for Mike McCarthy, Dak Prescott and Co., and according to Spotrac they have more salary-cap space than all but five NFL teams. That gives them wiggle room to absorb Jones’ inherited cap charge of $20.8 million.

Jones would likely cost them a first-round pick, possibly along with third-year starter Osa Odighizuwa. But he’d provide a huge upgrade in that spot. And if Dallas believes it can truly make a Super Bowl run with him on board (keep in mind that pick would come at the bottom of Round 1 under those circumstances), it’d be more than worth it."

Cowboys fans, how would you like to see Chris Jones with the Cowboys?
