RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Alan Ball.
Signed to a one-year, $3 million contract during the offseason, Ball gives some needed veteran depth and experience to a mostly youthful crop of cornerbacks. The 30-year-old has played mostly as a reserve over parts of eight NFL seasons with the Cowboys, Texans, and Jaguars, starting 44 of 93 games. Despite his lack of production, Ball was able to unseat two-time Pro Bowler Tim Jennings at one of the starting corner spots in training camp, with his 6-foot-2, 200-pound frame making him a better fit for coordinator Vic Fangio’s press-coverage scheme than the undersized Jennings.
Ball will likely be one of Jacksonville's starting cornerbacks, playing opposite Dwyane Gratz. He's in the final year of his contract, so he'll look to prove he's still a starting-caliber corner as he nears 30 years old.
Will likely serve as Jacksonville's nickel back this season.
Ball heads due south to Houston after five years in Dallas. Kareem Jackson and Jonathan Joseph are locked in as starters and there are some returning backups like Jason Allen and Brice McCain, so Ball will have to fight for a job.
With the experiment to turn Ball into a starting safety having been deemed a failure, he'll go back to providing secondary depth for the Cowboys.
Depth cornerback is in the mix for the starting free safety job.
