Bills WR Zay Jones is on track to be ready for the start of training camp, HC Sean McDermott said Thursday. Jones had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder in January and then another procedure on his knee in May. That followed a dreadful rookie campaign that saw him haul in just 27 of 74 targets (36.5%) for 316 yards and 2 scores. There's plenty of opportunity in a thin Bills WR corps, but Jones has a lot to prove.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that former Raiders WR Zay Jones will be signing a 3-year, $24 million deal with the Jaguars that could be worth up to $30 million. Jones enjoyed a nice 2nd half to 2021 with the Raiders, but the former 2nd-round pick has mostly disappointed through 5 NFL seasons. It's tough to get excited about his upside with a team that is also adding WR Christian Kirk and TE Evan Engram to an offense that returns RB Travis Etienne from IR and still sports WR Laviska Shenault and TE Dan Arnold. Jones' arrival could be a bad sign for Marvin Jones, who has just 1 year left on his contract and would provide $3.5 million in cap savings if cut this offseason.
Raiders WR Zay Jones is a healthy scratch for today's game against the Packers. He joined the team just a couple of weeks ago, but this is still surprising considering how thin Oakland is at WR with Tyrell Williams out. Hunter Renfrow, Trevor Davis, Keelan Doss and Marcell Ateman will be the team's top 4 WRs today.
The Raiders have acquired WR Zay Jones from the Bills in exchange for a 2021 5th-round pick. Jones was a disappointment in Buffalo since being selected 37th overall in the 2017 draft, registering an ugly 46.4% catch rate and 11.5 yards per catch. We'll see if this change of scenery turns things around for him. Jones will find opportunity in Oakland, where the Raiders have very little at WR beyond Tyrell Williams, who's already dealt with a couple of injuries this season. The Bills, meanwhile, will trot out either Duke Williams or Robert Foster in Jones' old outside WR spot. Williams played 78% of the offensive snaps in Week 5 with Foster sidelined with a groin injury. We'll monitor the situations in both Buffalo and Oakland. But we wouldn't bother adding Williams, Foster or Jones to fantasy rosters right now.
The Bills have activated WR Zay Jones from the non-football injury list. ESPN's Mike Rodak reports that Jones will practice with the team Sunday in a red non-contact jersey. He had been out since the start of training camp while recovering from May knee surgery. We'll watch his progress in a WR corps that's wide open behind top target Kelvin Benjamin, but don't expect Jones to become more than a late-round option -- and not even much of a lottery ticket there given his situation.
The Bills placed WR Zay Jones on the active/non-football injury list. He underwent shoulder surgery in January and knee surgery in May. According to ESPN's Mike Rodak, it's the knee that's keeping Jones sidelined now. We haven't heard timetable for his return. Jones needs all the reps he can get after a brutal rookie season that saw him corral just 36.5% of his targets. He's still in the driver's seat for Buffalo's #2 WR job but is just a late-round flier in fantasy drafts right now.
