Jones was waived by the Patriots on April 15 after spending three seasons with the organization. He played in 28 games and made 23 starts during the 2013-14 seasons, totaling 79 tackles (40 solo), nine sacks, 16 quarterback hits and 12 tackles for loss.
He was placed on the physically unable to perform list prior to the 2015 season and missed the entire year.
Jones originally entered the NFL as a sixth-round selection by the Houston Texans in the 2013 NFL Draft.
