Jones agreed to a deal with the Chargers on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Jones -- who announced his retirement in February before changing his mind in early April -- will take over punting duties for Drew Kaser, who was released Tuesday. The 14-year veteran is also expected to hold kicks for Caleb Sturgis.
Jones requested and received his release from the Eagles' reserve/retired list Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.
Jones announced his retirement from the NFL in late February, but it appears the 14-year veteran has changed his mind. His dismissal from the Eagles' reserve/retired list will immediately make him eligible to sign with another team.
Jones announced Tuesday that he is retiring from the NFL.
Fresh of his first Super Bowl win, Jones has elected to call it a career after 14 seasons in the NFL. Jones punted for five different teams during that stretch, but he spent the final five seasons of his career in Philadelphia. As of now, Cameron Johnston is the only other punter the Eagles have on their roster after they signed him to a futures contract, but they could add competition this offseason.
Jones signed a three-year, $5.5 million contract extension with the Eagles on Wednesday, Adam Caplan of ESPN.com reports.
Jones' contract includes $1 million in guaranteed money along with a $300K Pro Bowl incentive bonus. The former seventh-round pick is now 36 years old and provides the Eagles' special teams unit with a veteran presence.
Jones punted six times in Week 1 and had a net average of 39.2 yards.
Jones' 72-yard punt against the Browns was the second longest of his career, not bad for a 36-year old punter in his 13th season. He hasn't missed a game since becoming a starter in 2005 and doesn't seem likely to slow down any time soon.
The Eagles signed punter Donnie Jones to a three-year deal and released safety Patrick Chung, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer.
