Jones originally signed as undrafted free agent with the Houston Texans last year, then was added to Seattle’s practice squad on Nov. 10. He never was on the Seahawks’ active 53-man roster.
His departure creates a roster opening for the likely addition of fifth-round draft pick Kam Chancellor, who reportedly has agreed to a four-year deal that has not yet been officially announced by the team.
With Jones’ release, the current 80-man roster count stands at 79, plus eight unsigned rookie draft picks.
The Seahawks certainly have plenty of wide receivers on their roster. Even with Jones’ departure, Seattle still has 15 receivers after claiming former Washington quarterback Isaiah Stanback off waivers from the New England Patriots earlier this week.
