Grant, 28, is a former fifth-round pick by the Redskins out of Tulane in 2014. He signed a four-year, $2,433,612 rookie contract and tested the open market for the first time in his NFL career last year.

Grant failed a physical for the Ravens last year after agreeing to a four-year, $29 million deal. Afterward, he took visits with the Raiders and Colts before signing in Indianapolis on a one-year, $5 million deal.

The Raiders signed Grant to a one-year deal worth up to $2.5 million this past April, but was just recently released.

In 2019, Grant has appeared in two games for the Raiders and caught four passes for 14 yards receiving and no touchdowns.

Jones, 25, is a former sixth-round pick of the Lions back in 2014. He played out the final year of his contract and re-signed with Detroit to a one-year deal last season. 

Jones finished out his contract with the Lions and signed a one-year deal with the Steelers back in April, but was cut loose soon after. The Giants later signed him to a contract only to release him coming out of the preseason. 

Jones returned to the Giants soon after. 

In 2019, Jones has appeared in three games for the Giants and caught three passes for 38 yards receiving and one touchdown.
