Let go by San Fran

Jones was waived by the 49ers on Tuesday.

Analysis: Jones signed a one-year contract with the 49ers at the beginning of June, but his tenure was a short one as he now finds himself a free agent. The 27-year-old hasn't seen NFL action since appearing in eight games for the Lions in 2018.

Heading to San Francisco

Jones signed a one-year contract with the 49ers on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Jones heads to the Bay after spending some time with the Dolphins last preseason. He has appeared in 11 career games, most notably with the Lions, recording 11 receptions for 80 yards.

Parts ways with Dolphins

Miami cut Jones on Saturday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Jones resurfaced in Miami down the stretch during training camp, but he never had a realistic shot to make the regular-season roster. The undrafted rookie out of Jacksonville also didn't make the team's initial practice squad.

Back in South Beach

Jones agreed to a contract with Miami on Monday.

Analysis: Jones was let go by the team in April, but found his way back to battle for a depth roster spot in 2020. Jones went undrafted out of Jacksonville University in 2016 and has 11 catches for 80 yards and one touchdown in 11 career games.

Let go by Miami

Jones was waived by the Dolphins on Saturday.

Analysis: The 25-year-old joined Miami's practice squad in November and inked a futures deal at the close of the regular season. Jones went undrafted out of Jacksonville University in 2016 and has 11 catches for 80 yards and one touchdown in 11 career games.

Inks futures deal with Miami

Jones signed a reserve/futures contract with the Dolphins.

Analysis: Jones spent much of the season on the team's practice squad but never made it onto an active roster in 2019. He'll vie for a roster spot next year.

Added to Dolphins' practice squad

Jones was signed to Miami's practice squad Wednesday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Jones replaces DT Gerald Willis on the Dolphins' practice squad. A year removed from snagging 11 receptions for 80 yards as a member of the Lions, Jones has yet to dress in 2019. Because of his status as a practice squad player, any team can still add Jones to its 53-man roster.

Getting try-out in Miami

Jones tried out for the Dolphins on Tuesday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

Analysis: Jones opened the season on the Detroit's injured reserve list. However, he's since been released from IR and can now be confirmed as healthy after trying out for Miami.

Released with injury settlement

Jones (undisclosed) was released with an injury settlement Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Jones, who has spent the past two seasons in Detroit, was competing for a depth role on the roster before suffering an undisclosed injury. However, the Lions felt contempt letting the 25-year-old wideout walk away as Chris Lacy and Travis Fulgham will fulfill to two depth wideout roles on the active roster.

Lands on IR

Jones (undisclosed) cleared waivers and reverted to the Lions' injured reserve, per the league's official transaction log.

Analysis: Jones was one of the top contenders for a roster spot as a depth receiver, but he was ultimately waived over the weekend with an undisclosed injury. While it's not clear what sort of injury he's dealing with, Jones is likely stuck on IR until the end of the league year, barring an injury settlement.

Peppered with targets

Jones snagged six of 12 targets for 50 yards during Sunday's victory over Green Bay.

Analysis: Jones and Brandon Powell were the apples of quarterback Matthew Stafford's eye on a day without top target Kenny Golladay (chest), as the two combined for 21 of Stafford's 32 pass attempts. While Jones was much less effective with his touches, he could have had a much bigger day had he been able to get in better position either of the two times he was targeted in the end zone. The inexperienced receiver also dropped a pair of seemingly catchable balls. Under contract with Detroit through the end of the 2019 season, Jones will now enter the offseason with aims of securing the No. 3 receiver role behind Golladay and Marvin Jones (knee) ahead of the new campaign.

Does little with boosted workload

Jones caught one of five targets for 12 yards during Sunday's 27-9 loss to Minnesota.

Analysis: Jones produced little despite earning a career high in targets, though he did draw a flag on third down to help the Lions move the sticks at one point. With Bruce Ellington (hamstring) on injured reserve and Jones now a secondary target behind Kenny Golladay, the third-year wideout should again see a handful of targets when Detroit takes on Green Bay in next Sunday's season finale.

Records first career touchdown

Jones recorded two receptions for nine yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 14-13 loss to the Bills.

Analysis: With Bruce Ellington (hamstring) inactive, Jones served as the Lions' No. 2 receiver behind Kenny Golladay, easily out-snapping fellow depth receiver TJ Jones 45 to 36. Along the way, the third-year wideout collected his first career touchdown while setting new career highs in receptions and yardage (however uninspiring those totals may be). If Ellington remains sidelined in Week 16, Andy Jones could again see a heightened offensive role this Sunday against the Vikings.

Draws two targets

Jones caught one of two targets for five yards during Sunday's 17-3 victory over the Cardinals.

Analysis: Jones logged a career high in playing time with 37 offensive snaps thanks in large part to the hamstring injury that forced Bruce Ellington from the game. While Jones wasn't able to much with his increased role, no Lions receiver was particularly productive on a day quarterback Matthew Stafford threw for a career-low 101 passing yards. Depending on the severity of Ellington's situation, Jones could again be in store for heightened playing time in Week 15 against the Bills.

Dec 10, 2018 8:39 AM EST


No opportunities against Rams

Jones wasn't targeted during Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Rams.

Analysis: Jones is running as the Lions' clear No. 4 wideout after Kenny Golladay, Bruce Ellington and TJ Jones. Unless his role unexpectedly grows in the near future, he'll remain far off the fantasy radar.

Dec 2, 2018 6:21 PM EST


Records first career reception

Jones caught one pass for four yards during Thursday's loss to the Bears.

Analysis: Jones caught the first pass of his professional career while helping fill in for the injured Marvin Jones (knee). However, Marvin Jones could return as soon as next week against the Rams, which would significantly reduce Andy Jones' role in the offense.

Rejoins Lions

Jones signed a contract with the Lions on Saturday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Analysis: Jones was waived by the Lions in early November after coming off the Physcially Unable to Perform list, and now rejoins the team with Marvin Jones (knee) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. The 28-year-old is likely to remain in a depth role at wide receiver, but should see some snaps on special teams.

Nov 17, 2018 1:12 PM EST


Let go by Detroit

Jones was waived by the Lions on Monday.

Analysis: Jones was activated off the Physically Unable to Perform list prior to Sunday's game against the Vikings. The 24-year-old wideout saw action as the team's No. 4 receiver, though that action was limited to just two snaps. It's unclear if the Lions are interested in signing Jones to their practice squad if he clears waivers, though it would seem likely due to the fact they're in need of receiver depth since trading Golden Tate.

Sees playing time on offense

Jones logged two offensive snaps during Sunday's 24-9 loss to Minnesota.

Analysis: Even though Jones was blanked from the stat sheet, he significantly ran as Detroit's No. 4 receiver over Brandon Powell, who was thought to be in line for an expanded offensive role in the wake of Golden Tate being traded to Philadelphia. However, Jones still didn't see nearly enough playing time to warrant fantasy consideration, and it's unlikely that changes unless the injury bug bites any member of the Lions' top trio of receivers in Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones, and TJ Jones.

Nov 5, 2018 1:02 PM EST


Returns from PUP list

Jones (undisclosed) was activated off the Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Analysis: Jones makes his return to the Lions after spending the first eight weeks of the season on the PUP list with the injury. Even with Golden Tate being traded to the Eagles this week, Jones is unlikely to play a significant role offensively with the rest of the wide receiver group healthy.
