LA Chargers acquire QB Cardale Jones in trade with Buffalo

He joins a Chargers roster that features Philip Rivers and Kellen Clemens, along with rookies Eli Jenkins and Mike Bercovici. Jones became the odd man out in Buffalo's quarterback room after the team drafted Nathan Peterman in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft. According to ESPN.com, that conditional pick will be a seventh-rounder. Jones was inactive for 15 games in Buffalo before throwing 11 passes in the fourth quarter of the season finale.

Former Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones has been traded from the Buffalo Bills to the Los Angeles Chargers for a draft pick, Buffalo announced Wednesday.

Buffalo selected Jones with the 139th overall pick previous year out of Ohio State in the 2016 NFL Draft.

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

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.

A majority of fans may look at this trade as a minor occurrence as training camp starts up, but that is not the case. The quarterback's future was perhaps written on the wall when the team selected Peterman, a new developmental quarterback that was handpicked by the new regime.

The Bills' first training camp practice is scheduled for Thursday afternoon.

Following the departures of Whaley and Rex Ryan, Jones fell to fourth on the Bills depth chart under new head coach Sean McDermott.

As for the Chargers, the addition of Jones all but ends their search for a backup quarterback. "He's what you want waiting on the runway".

Robert Griffin III worked out for the Chargers on Tuesday, but wasn't signed.
