Headed back to Detroit

Jones signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Lions on Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Jones posted 46 receptions on 81 targets for 529 yards and three touchdowns across 16 appearances with the Jaguars in 2022, his least productive healthy season since his rookie campaign. The 2012 fifth-round pick will head back to Detroit, with whom he played from 2016 through 2020, including a 2017 campaign in which he set a career high with 1,101 receiving yards. With DJ Chark now in Carolina, Jones will likely slot in as the No. 3 wideout behind Amon-Ra St. Brown and Jameson Williams, who should be store for a heftier workload after a lost rookie season.
