The Bills today made a roster move with quarterback Cardale Jones, sending him to the Los Angeles Chargers for a conditional draft pick.
The writing was on the wall for Jones after his biggest supporter – now Chargers coach Anthony Lynn, left to go coach the Bolts.
Jones’ staunchest supporters left Western New York when Lynn departed for Los Angeles and general manager Doug Whaley lost his job in late April.
Buffalo proceeded to sign journeyman T.J. Yates and draft Nathan Peterman, leaving Jones as the odd man out of the quarterback rotation.
It’s no surprise that the former Ohio State star is headed to Southern California. Although Jones struggled in offseason practices as a rookie, he made quite an impression on Lynn, the Bills’ 2016 offensive coordinator-turned-interim head coach.
We've traded QB Cardale Jones to the Los Angeles Chargers for a conditional draft pick.
