Cowboys Reach Deal With Jaylon Smith

The Dallas Cowboys reached a five-year deal worth $64 million with linebacker Jaylon Smith on Tuesday, according to sources. The extension includes $35.5 million guaranteed. Smith was set to become a free agent after this year. He was slated to be a top-five pick in 2016 but fell to the second round after he tore two ligaments and suffered nerve damage in his knee. Smith didn't play in his rookie year, but he's becoming a cornerstone for their defense and hasn't missed a game in his two seasons while earning 249 total tackles. He finished second on the team in tackles (150) with four sacks, five tackles for loss, 13 quarterback pressures, four pass breakups, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in 2018.

Jaylon Smith A Three-Down Linebacker

Dallas Cowboys linebacker Jaylon Smith is an every-down linebacker, according to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Smith appeared in all 16 games last season, but made just six starts. The Cowboys plan to increase his snaps now that he is two years removed from his knee injury. Smith is good against the run but had middling PFF grades in 2017, ranking outside the top 40 linebackers. Dallas is hoping he will make a third-year leap.
