Jones was released by the Raiders on Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Jones was cut to make room for tight end Erik Swoope, who was signed by the team Tuesday. The 2013 fourth-round pick had a lengthy run as the backup quarterback in Pittsburgh, making five starts in five years before he was unseated by Joshua Dobbs and Mason Rudolph during the 2018 preseason. Derek Carr, Mike Glennon and Nathan Peterman remain on the depth chart at quarterback for the Raiders.
