Chargers Grab QB Cardale Jones From Buffalo for a Conditional Draft Pick

USA Today Sports

The Chargers today picked up a quarterback who has a history with new Bolts coach Anthony Lynn, as the team traded with Buffalo for quarterback Cardale Jones, for a conditional draft pick.

The writing was on the wall for Jones after his biggest supporter – now Chargers coach Anthony Lynn, left to go coach the Bolts.

Jones’ staunchest supporters left Western New York when Lynn departed for Los Angeles and general manager Doug Whaley lost his job in late April.

Buffalo proceeded to sign journeyman T.J. Yates and draft Nathan Peterman, leaving Jones as the odd man out of the quarterback rotation.

It’s no surprise that the former Ohio State star is headed to Southern California. Although Jones struggled in offseason practices as a rookie, he made quite an impression on Lynn, the Bills’ 2016 offensive coordinator-turned-interim head coach.

The Chargers worked out QB Robert Griffin III this week, but didn’t sign him, instead going for Jones in a deal instead.
