Earlier in the day, Breer mentions that the Bengals were interested in keeping Jones, but it could be tough, given the number of free agents Cincinnati has to deal with.
Beyond that, there’s a lot of cap space out there to throw money at someone like Jones.
Jones, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Bengals back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract and is now in line to be among the most sought after receivers in this year’s market.
In 2015, Jones appeared in all 16 games and recorded 65 receptions for 816 yards receiving and four touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 50 receiver out of 119 qualifying players.
