Jones, 28, is a former fourth-round pick by the Steelers in the 2013 NFL Draft. He finished out the final year of his four-year rookie contract and returned to Pittsburgh on a two-year contract last offseason.

However, the Steelers elected to release Jones coming out of the preseason and they trimmed their roster down to 53 players.

Since becoming a free agent, Jones has worked out for the Cowboys, Jaguars, and Patriots, but left each meeting without a contract.

In 2017, Jones appeared in three games for the Steelers and recorded 23 completions on 28 attempts (82.1 percent) for 239 passing yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Manuel, 28, is a former first-round pick by the Bills back in 2013. He played out the final year of his four-year, $8,885,300 rookie contract but the Bills declined to pick up his fifth-year option for the 2017 season.

Manuel signed back-to-back one-year contract with the Raiders but was waived coming out of the preseason. This marks the first team to show interest in him since becoming a free agent.

In 2017, Manuel appeared in two games for the Raiders and completed 55.8 percent of his passes for 265 yards to go along with one touchdown and one interception.
