Bills QB Cardale Jones Traded To Chargers For Conditional Draft Pick

Addition of QB Cardale Jones an absolute coup for Chargers

The move reunites Jones with Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn, who was Buffalo's offensive coordinator last season before leaving for Los Angeles.

The #Los Angeles Chargers and the Buffalo Bills have agreed to a trade to send quarterback Cardale Jones across the country to LA. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bills will get a conditional seventh-round pick in return.

After being drafted by the Bills in the fourth round of the 2016 National Football League draft, Jones only played in a single regular season game, the Bills' final game of the 2016 season against the New York Jets.

He received the fewest practice reps during offseason workouts, as the Bills clearly created a two-way competition between T.J. Yates and rookie Nathan Peterman for the second- and third-string quarterback spots behind Tyrod Taylor.

"He's the type of quarterback you want waiting on the runway", Lynn said on the team's website.




Although Jones had strong support from former Bills General Manager Doug Whaley, at least one former assistant coach on the team was known to have had major questions about Jones' maturity and dedication.

Robert Griffin III had worked out for the Chargers recently but wasn't signed. "He's going to have the opportunity to come on the field and compete".

Jones' acquisition Wednesday gives the Chargers five quarterbacks - Philip Rivers, who has started every game since 2006; Kellen Clemens, who has thrown 10 passes in his three seasons with the team; Mike Bercovici, who played for the Chargers in the preseason in 2016, but was released before the start of the regular season; undrafted rookie free agent Eli Jenkins from Jacksonville State; and Jones. Cardale is someone we think can be developed. Jones was inactive for 15 games in Buffalo before throwing 11 passes in the fourth quarter of the season finale.

The Chargers have been looking for a reliable back up to veteran Philip Rivers.
