Los Angeles Chargers acquire quarterback in trade

Former Ohio State National Champion and Buffalo Bills quarterback Cardale Jones is finding a new home on the west coast.

The Los Angeles Chargers acquired second-year quarterback Cardale Jones on Wednesday in a trade with the Buffalo Bills that sends a conditional draft pick to Buffalo. Jones gives the team a younger option at quarterback, even if he's limited to backup duties.

The Bills announced on Twitter they traded Jones to the Chargers in exchange for a conditional draft pick.

Following the departures of Whaley and Rex Ryan, Jones fell to fourth on the Bills depth chart under new head coach Sean McDermott. Philip Rivers will turn 36 in December, and Kellen Clemens turned 34 in June. "He's the type of quarterback you want waiting on the runway". The 6-foot-5, 200-pound didn't step onto the field until the final 15 minutes of the season, but Lynn has described him as an ideal developmental prospect - one whose strong arm and footwork could allow him to flourish in the right environment. The team worked out former Redskin Robert Griffin III, but the addition of Jones would likely end that potential marriage. "He's accurate. I think his development has come along fine". Jones completed six of 11 passes for 96 yards and an interception in a 30-10 loss.

The Bills' selection of Pittsburgh Panthers quarterback Nathan Peterman, who was taken 171st overall this year, may have portended Jones' eventual departure, but they've seen nothing of Peterman outside of rookie minicamp thus far.

Peterman presumably will get more meaningful training-camp reps now, behind starter Tyrod Taylor and veteran T.J. Yates.
