The Buffalo Bills have announced via their website that they will not offer a tender to RFA Donald Jones, despite a report earlier today that it was looking like the team would resign him. This will make him an unrestricted free agent on March 12th. Here is the press release from the Bills.
The Buffalo Bills today announced that the team will not tender WR Donald Jones, making the wide receiver available when the NFL free agency period begins on March 12th.
Bills General Manager Buddy Nix said, “We have made the decision not to re-sign Donald. We’re going in a different direction and this move today gives Donald the opportunity to catch on with another team early on in the process. We thank him for his years with our organization and wish him the best in the future.”
The move allows Jones to sign on with another team with absolutely no limitations. Jones has been a member of the Bills since 2010, recording 887 yards and 6 touchdowns.
