Jones signed a two-year, $2.6 million contract with the Panthers on Monday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports. Jones served as the Panthers' special teams captain last season and led the unit with six special teams tackles. The 31-year-old is likely to remain a depth option at safety in 2019 and do most of his damage on special teams once more.
Jones is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns due to an illness. Jones was a non-participant at practice throughout the week, but the undisclosed illness apparently isn't serious enough to rule him out just yet. The 31-year-old has played only 12 defensive snaps since Eric Reid debuted with the Panthers in Week 5, so the defense is unlikely to be impacted should he be unable to suit up.
Jones signed a two-year deal with the Panthers on Tuesday, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports. Jones has been with Carolina since 2012, and this deal ensures that he will stay there through the 2018 season, barring a release. The safety has become a valuable special teams player for the Panthers since arriving and provides depth in the defensive backfield. Jones has 102 tackles, one interception and one sack in 89 games played since becoming a Panther.
Jones (concussion) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Jones' availability for Sunday was expected after practicing in full throughout the week. Starting free safety Tre Boston (ankle) is also active, so Jones is slated to serve as his backup.
Jones (concussion) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders, David Newton of ESPN.com reports. Jones has been able to fully participate in practice throughout the week, so he'll just need to pass final tests before being cleared to play Sunday. If Tre Boston (ankle) is ruled out, Jones could get the start at free safety.
