The Buffalo Bills have traded quarter-back Cardale Jones to the Los Angeles Chargers for a conditional 7th round draft pick. Jones joined the Bills in 2016 and appeared in just one game last season – a 30-10 defeat to the New York Jets in Week 17.
The trade is a sensible move for both franchises, particularly the Chargers, who now have a younger option to replace 36-year-old Philip Rivers, and 34-year-old Kellen Clemens. Jones is expected to remain a back-up player, but hopes for future opportunities with the LA team.
Jones tweeted: ‘Big thanks to @buffalobills and #BillsMafia for showing me nothing but love & support my during my brief time with the organization’
NFL expert Chris Wesseling pointed out that Jones has plenty of experience working with Chargers coach Anthony Lynn, explaining: “Cardale Jones reuniting with Anthony Lynn, who said last year the young QB is the kind of prospect “you want waiting on the runway.””
