Chargers land QB Cardale Jones from Bills in trade

Bills send QB Cardale Jones to Chargers on eve of camp

Fifteen months ago, Rex Ryan was still the Bills' head coach and the team had just used a fourth-round pick on former Ohio State star Cardale Jones, who was the latest in a long line of quarterbacks to hopefully solve the ongoing quarterback problems in Buffalo.

Sending a seventh-round pick to the Bills for Jones makes sense for the Chargers.

Jones, who joined the Bills previous year as a fourth-round choice from Ohio State, seemingly was a long-shot to make the Buffalo roster.

The trade reunites Jones with Chargers first-year head coach Anthony Lynn, who finished the 2016 season as Buffalo's interim head coach.

The Los Angeles Chargers added another passer to back up Philip Rivers.

New Orleans officials today announced mosquito samples collected in the city tested positive for the pathogen. Drain standing water in yards that can collect in old tires, potted plant trays, pet dishes, toys or buckets.

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.

Griffin III reportedly had a good workout with the Chargers. "He's going to have the opportunity to come on the field and compete".

On Wednesday, after one appearance and 11 attempts during his rookie season, Jones was traded to the Chargers for a conditional draft pick. Cardale is someone we think can be developed.

Starter Tyrod Taylor signed an extension with under McDermott's lead while the team signed and drafted six-year vet TJ Yates and rookie Nathan Peterman (5th-round), respectively, this offseason.

Jones got his only pro playing time in Buffalo's season finale, this past January at the New York Jets, when he relieved an terrible EJ Manuel in the second half and completed 6-of-11 throws.
