New deal for Donald Jones?
By Tim Kavanagh
With a new coaching staff entering the picture for the Buffalo Bills, there is expected to be some roster churn, and with a WR corps that has not been all that impressive outside of Steve Johnson, the club may be looking for outside options as the Doug Marrone administration takes over. Nevertheless, it appears that they'll be giving at least one of the impending free agents another shot.
According to Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 Radio, the Bills are currently working on a deal to bring back RFA Donald Jones. Jones doubled his career receptions (41) and yardage (443) in 2012, and added four touchdowns. Along with fellow RFA David Nelson, they represent the Bills' best internal options to serve as a complement to Johnson.
Then again, with a reported $20.6 million in projected salary cap space, per ESPN's John Clayton, perhaps Buffalo goes shopping for a true upgrade amongst the outside FAs at the position, a group that includes Greg Jennings, Dwayne Bowe, Mike Wallace and Wes Welker.
