Jones was waived Saturday by the Cowboys, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: A loaded Cowboys wide receiver depth chart made it unlikely Jones would finish on the final 53-man roster, a result that was confirmed Saturday. Jones could be a practice squad candidate for the Cowboys, however, which was how the 27-year-old made a couple of spot appearances with the Steelers last season.
Jones signed a reserve/future contract with the Cowboys on Monday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Jones made a key recovery on Diontae Johnson's fumble in Sunday's loss to the Bills, but the 26-year-old Jones also dropped two passes.

Jones totaled 24 yards on two receptions in Pittsburgh's 21 - 7 loss to Cleveland Thursday night.
Analysis: Injuries to JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) and Diontae Washington (concussion) created an opportunity for Jones to make his professional debut. He was targeted four times and could see more action if Smith-Schuster or Washington are unable to clear the league's concussion protocol. Fortunately for fantasy owners Pittsburgh has 10 days until playing Cincinnati in Week 12.

Jones logged a 4.48 40-yard dash time during the 2016 combine, and he could offer upside on special teams.
