Bills trade QB Cardale Jones to Charges for draft pick

Bills trade QB Cardale Jones to Charges for draft pick”

The conditional pick is a seventh-rounder, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Nevertheless, new Chargers coach Anthony Lynn, who was the Bills' offensive coordinator for most of last season and spent the final game as their interim head coach, saw enough in Jones to give him an opportunity in L.A.

The #Los Angeles Chargers and the Buffalo Bills have agreed to a trade to send quarterback Cardale Jones across the country to LA.

Cardale Jones, the Ohio State quarterback who jumped from third-stringer to National Championship starter for the Buckeyes during the 2014 season, has a new NFL home.

Jones received only limited reps with the Bills offense during organized team activities and minicamp this spring. Philip Rivers will turn 36 in December, and Kellen Clemens turned 34 in June.

Jones arrived on the team as an ultra-raw prospect with a strong arm, but little else in the way of accuracy, consistency or pocket awareness. "He's the type of quarterback you want waiting on the runway".

Griffin III reportedly had a good workout with the Chargers. "He's accurate. I think his development has come along fine".

Jones played in just one game during his rookie season and completed six of 11 passes for 96 yards and threw one interception.

The Buffalo Bills chose to part ways with Jones for what was originally reported as a "late" conditional pick according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, who was the first to report on the transaction Wednesday.

Buffalo used a fourth-round pick on Jones in the 2016 NFL Draft, but felt comfortable moving forward with free agent acquisition T.J. Yates and rookie Nathan Peterman as the team's backup options.
