  Chargers | LA Chargers sign seven to futures deals    Tue Jan 15, 02:38 AM

Free-agent DE Patrick Afriyie, LB Tre'Von Johnson, QB Cardale Jones, WR Justice Liggins, TE Vince Mayle, WR Andre Patton and CB Arrion Springs signed futures contracts with the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday, Jan. 14.

Footballguys view: He's a quarterback, so we'll keep an eye on Jones in crazy deep dynasty formats. He's got a big arm and some mobility but he's done little to impress in the pros. We'll see if that can change as he continues to develop with the Chargers.

  Chargers | Cardale Jones back with Chargers    Tue Sep 4, 07:28 PM

Free-agent QB Cardale Jones (Chargers) was re-signed to the Los Angeles Chargers' practice squad Tuesday, Sept. 4.

Footballguys view: As expected, Jones returns to the Chargers to continue his development. He's got a big arm and can use his legs to pick up yards, but Jones needs to be more nuanced as a passer if he wants to get on the field as a quarterback.

  Chargers | Cardale Jones could return to Bolts    Sun Sep 2, 10:56 PM

Free-agent QB Cardale Jones (Chargers) could return to the Los Angeles Chargers as a member of the practice squad, according to general manager Tom Telesco.

Footballguys view: Jones lost out to Geno Smith in the backup quarterback competition behind starter Philip Rivers. He's got a big arm and some athleticism to note, but Jones is a raw prospect who needs more time to develop.

  Chargers | Cardale Jones sent packing    Sun Sep 2, 02:44 PM

Los Angeles Chargers QB Cardale Jones was waived Sunday, Sept. 2.

Footballguys view: The Chargers originally kept three quarterbacks, but ended up opting for Geno Smith to back up Philip Rivers. Jones had previously played with head coach Anthony Lynn in Buffalo. He might end up on a practice squad.

  Chargers | Cardale Jones in line for backup role    Sun Aug 12, 11:40 PM

Los Angeles Chargers QB Cardale Jones has an edge on QB Geno Smith for the backup quarterback job, according to Nick Shook of NFL.com.

Footballguys view: It's not a great group behind starter Philip Rivers. Fantasy GMs in dynasty formats may have been holding onto Jones (in super deep leagues), so continue to monitor his progress.

  Chargers | Two battling for backup QB    Wed Aug 8, 03:40 PM

Los Angeles Chargers QBs Cardale Jones and Geno Smith are each listed as the team's No. 2 quarterback on the first unofficial depth chart of training camp with QB Nic Shimonek listed No. 4.

Footballguys view: Good thing Philip Rivers is one of the most durable players in the league. The Chargers would be in trouble if either one of these guys had to take over. Smith has plenty of starting experience from his time with the Jets while Jones has the big arm and athleticism. The Chargers are a favorite by many analysts to win the AFC West...so long as Rivers stays upright.

  Chargers | Cardale Jones may start Thursday    Mon Aug 28, 08:17 PM

Los Angeles Chargers QB Cardale Jones may start the final preseason game because QB Philip Rivers will not play and there is a good chance QB Kellen Clemens sits out as well, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.

  Chargers | Cardale Jones impressing Antonio Gates    Thu Aug 10, 10:17 PM

Los Angeles Chargers QB Cardale Jones has 'special ability,' according to tight end Antonio Gates. 'The ceiling is unlimited for him,' Gates said.

Footballguys view: Jones was acquired for a song and this preseason could get him on track to be developed as Philip Rivers eventual replacement. Head coach Anthony Lynn knows Jones from their time together in Buffalo, which is a potential good sign and endorsement.

  Bills | Buffalo trades Cardale Jones    Wed Jul 26, 07:57 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Cardale Jones was traded to the Los Angeles Chargers Wednesday, July 26, in exchange for a conditional draft choice.

Footballguys view: Jones wasn't separating himself from guys like T.J. Yates and Nate Peterman in Bills offseason work. They'll move on with Yates and Peterman competing for the backup job behind Tyrod Taylor in 2017.

  Chargers | Cardale Jones acquired by Chargers    Wed Jul 26, 07:49 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Cardale Jones was acquired by the Los Angeles Chargers Wednesday, July 26, in exchange for a conditional draft choice.

Footballguys view: Jones is reunited with former Bills OC Anthony Lynn in Los Angeles. He's got a big arm and is athletic, but "12 gauge" has a lot to learn as a passer. We'll see him compete for a backup job behind Philip Rivers in 2017.

  Bills | Cardale Jones could be on bubble    Wed Jun 14, 05:26 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Cardale Jones could be on the roster bubble because he was fourth in the quarterback rotation during practice Wednesday, June 14, behind QBs Tyrod Taylor, T.J. Yates and Nathan Peterman.

Footballguys view: Jones has a big arm but little control as a passer. He'll need to show consistent accuracy during training camp and the preseason if he wants to stay with the Bills. Taylor is the clear-cut starter and Peterman is an interesting developmental quarterback we have a lot of deep dynasty love for.

  Bills | Cardale Jones a starting option for Bills?    Sat Feb 11, 01:42 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Cardale Jones being the team's starting quarterback next season is believed to be an appealing option for general manager Doug Whaley.

Footballguys view: There has been buzz about Jones being a real possibility, and Carucci is one of the most respected reporters in the game. The Bills are not close to competing for a Super Bowl, so instead of reaching for a quarterback (if/when they let Tyrod Taylor go) they could just go with "12 gauge." Jones has a big arm, and he's athletic enough to keep plays alive with his feet. However, he's rough around the edges...really rough, with accuracy and decision making being a big problem.

  Bills | EJ Manuel benched    Sun Jan 1, 03:41 PM

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel was benched during the Sunday, Jan. 1, game against the New York Jets. Manuel was replaced by QB Cardale Jones.

Footballguys view: Manuel was erratic and did nothing to improve his career prospects in this opportunity to show the league where his development is at as he enters free agency. The Bills quarterback situation is one of the league's most unstable heading into 2017.

  Bills | Cardale Jones will be in uniform    Sat Dec 31, 04:01 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Cardale Jones will be active for the team's Week 17 game and will serve as the backup quarterback.

Footballguys view: Jones has a big arm and the athleticism to keep plays alive. He does not have great accuracy as a passer, and his decision making is a work in progress. The Bills will likely be looking for a new starting quarterback this offseason, but Jones is still more of a developmental prospect.

  Bills | Cardale Jones not ready    Fri Dec 16, 08:33 AM

Buffalo Bills QB Cardale Jones isn't ready to play, according to general manager Doug Whaley. He'll remain on the bench unless QB Tyrod Taylor and QB EJ Manuel go down.

Footballguys view: Jones is athletic and has a monster arm, but his say-it-don't-spray-it accuracy leaves a lot to be desired...so does his decision-making ability. He'll continue to develop in Buffalo, and only fantasy owners in deep dynasty leagues should be rostering him.

  Bills | Cardale Jones to remain No. 3 QB    Tue Dec 13, 11:34 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Cardale Jones will be the team's No. 3 quarterback in Week 15, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Footballguys view: Tyrod Taylor is still the starter, and former first-round pick E.J. Manuel is still the backup. Taylor's future in Buffalo is in question, and Manuel seems like a lock to move on. Jones has a big arm and is athletic, but accuracy and decision making need some serious work. We've got stock in Jones, but only in deep dynasty leagues.
