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.

He spent time with the Texans and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but did not appear in any games before New England claimed him off waivers on Sept. 11, 2013.
