He provides some veteran depth to compete along the offensive line during training camp. Denver was one of the teams interested in Jones earlier this offseason.
In a corresponding move, Denver waived C Patrick Morris, per Mike Klis.
Jones, 29, was selected in the second round of 2013 CFL draft by the Calgary Stampeders. In just two years with the Stampeders, Jones won CFL’s Most Outstanding Rookie Award (2013) and the Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman Award (2014).
Jones signed on with the Giants back in 2015 and returned to New York on a one-year restricted deal worth $2.914 million for the 2018 season. The Giants later traded him to the Vikings for a seventh-round pick.
From there, the Vikings re-signed Jones to a one-year deal.
In 2020, Jones appeared in 15 games for the Vikings, making two starts for them.
