Jones, 26, was taken in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Bills. Buffalo traded Jones to the Chargers in 2017 in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick.

Jones was entering the third year of his four-year, $2.72 million rookie contract when the Chargers waived him coming out of the preseason. L.A. signed him to their practice squad after clearing waivers.

The Chargers re-signed him to a futures contract back in January.

In 2016, Jones completed 6 of 11 passing attempts (54.5 percent) for 96 yards receiving and one interception.
