QB - FA
After being waived by the Chargers, third-year quarterback Cardale Jones will join the club's practice squad as the third signal-caller behind Philip Rivers and Geno Smith.
Jones saw action in one game for the Bills during his rookie season. The 2016 fourth-rounder has little chance of being called up by the Chargers, who are led by Phillip Rivers, who hasn't missed a start in 12 seasons at the helm.
Cardale Jones completed 6-of-12 passes for 50 yards and lost one fumble in the Chargers' 24-17 preseason loss to the Cardinals Saturday night. He added three rushes for 15 yards.
Jones played poorly Saturday, giving the advantage to Geno Smith in the competition to play behind Philip Rivers. He has limited fantasy appeal even in the event of winning the backup job in Los Angeles.
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Buffalo Bills have traded quarterback Cardale Jones to the Los Angeles Chargers for a seventh round conditional draft pick.
After signing T.J. Yates in free agency and selecting Nathan Peterman in the draft this offseason, Jones became expendable in Buffalo. For Los Angeles, landing Jones likely means they are out of the Robert Griffin III market. They brought the free agent signal caller in for a visit earlier in the week but did not sign him.
Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones' combine workout ended prematurely due to a hamstring injury suffered during the 40-yard dash.
Jones was spotted sitting on a bench icing his right hamstring and told NFL Media reporter Kimberly Jones that he was done for the day. His official time on his first attempt was 4.81 seconds, but the injury occurred on his second attempt just a few yards short of the finish. His second attempt was unofficially clocked at 4.85 seconds. Poor performance early last season got Jones replaced by backup passer J.T. Barrett, so this combine was especially important for Jones.
