Kitchen, 27, originally signed on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Kent State back in 2012. He lasted just a few months with the Ravens before he was cut at the start of the 2012 season and later claimed by the Browns.
Kitchen wound up re-signing with the Browns as a restricted free agent this past May, but was unfortunately among the team’s roster cuts over a month ago. After a brief stint with the Lions, the Patriots signed Kitchen towards the end of the year.
In 2015, Kitchen was active for two games, but didn’t record a single statistic.
Jones, 25, is a former sixth-round pick of the Texans back in 2013. He lasted just a few months in Houston before he was waived and later claimed by the Buccaneers. Jones was once again waived after a few weeks and this time claimed by the Patriots.
He’s in the final year of his four-year, $2.253 million rookie contract and stands to make a base salary of $675,000 for the 2016 season.
In 2014, Jones appeared in 15 games for the Patriots and recorded 25 tackles and three sacks.
