- Schefter adds that Jones receives a three-year contract worth $11.3 million.
It was somewhat surprising to see how little buzz Jones had been generating, despite some teams being in need of help at receiver. The Panthers seemed like a good fit Jones, who said that he would love to play for them, but they are apparently still shopping for even better at this point in the offseason.
Jones, 29, was able to produce a staggering 14 touchdowns two years ago. In 2013, Jones caught 59 passes for 817 yards and 3 touchdowns.
