Cowboys to Visit with Jets Free Agent DE Kony Ealy

Jets free agent defensive end Kony Ealy is slated to visit the Cowboys early this week, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports citing source. He’s also remained in discussions with Jets over the past few weeks.

Ealy spent the 2017 regular season with the Jets. He was traded from the Panthers to the Patriots, but New England waived him in preseason. The Jets picked him up.

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.
