Former Bills WR Donald Jones Will Retire From The NFL


Mike Garafolo reports that free agent WR Donald Jones will retire from the NFL due to kidney issues.

Jones has been dealing with a kidney disease his entire life and it’s advanced to the point where he’s no longer able to play in the NFL.

The Bills no-tendered Jones months ago and he later signed with the Patriots before being released. He recently tried out for the Titans and Colts.


According to Mike Garafolo, free agent WR Donald Jones will head to Tennessee for a workout with the Titans on Tuesday.

  • Garafolo mentions that Jones also a visit lined up with the Colts on Wednesday as well. 
  • Garafolo adds that there could be more visits for Jones, depending on what happens with the Titans and Colts.


Adam Caplan suggests that the Browns and Colts could both be options for recently released WR Donald Jones.

Jones, 25, was waived by the Patriots last week and has since gone unclaimed.

The Browns could use some extra help at wide receiver as Josh Gordon will miss two games following his suspension for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy.

Indianapolis will also be without one of their receivers because a suspension. LaVon Brazill received a four-game suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy for testing positive for marijuana.


Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports that the Patriots are releasing WR Donald Jones.

  • Rapoport adds that New England wants to get their young players like Aaron Dobson & Josh Boyce more reps during training camp. 

Jones, 25, signed a three-year deal worth $3.41 million with the Patriots back in March, but the contract included no money guaranteed.

There were reports that Jones was competing for one roster spot with Michael Jenkins, so this does not come as a huge surprise.

Jones will have to pass through waivers before he can sign with another team.
