The Chiefs on Saturday traded linebacker Edgar Jones to the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for an undisclosed draft pick.

Jones spent one season with the Chiefs primarily as a special teams player. He recovered a fumble by the Tampa Bay punter for a touchdown last year.

The trade leaves the Chiefs with 52 players on their roster, one short of the 53-man limit.
