Donald Jones set to be a free agent-- Thu Feb 7 5:30 pm --
Bills will not tender wide receiver
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’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." (BuffaloBills.com)
FF Today's Take:This is a curious move for the Bills who aren't necessarily deep at the wide receiver position. Jones was a restricted free agent but will become unrestricted and free to sign with any team in March. The market for wide receivers is deep and it's reasonable to assume the Bills will be active pursuing a veteran pass catcher to go along with Steve Johnson.
