The Cowboys have signed punter Chris Jones to a four-year contract extension through the 2021 season.

Jones, who had one year remaining on his deal, set a career high last season with a 45.9-yard punt average, including a 66-yarder that dribbled out of bounds at the Eagles 1-yard line in the regular-season finale. He now has the all-time highest percentage of punts downed inside the 20-yard line (39.9 percent) in team history.

Jones most memorable play was a de-cleating hit on Detroit Lions punt returner Andre Roberts in Week 16. He also showed he could gain yardage as well as stop forward progress: his 30-yard run on a fake punt in Week 8 was the fourth-longest run by an NFL punter in 30 yards and set up a field goal in the Cowboys overtime win over the Eagles.
