Buffalo Bills won't re-sign receiver Donald Jones

The Buffalo Bills will not re-sign wide receiver Donald Jones, the organization announced Thursday. He was set to be a restricted free agent, but the Bills won't tender an offer to the third-year pro.

"We have made the decision not to re-sign Donald," general manager Buddy Nix said in a press release. "We're going in a different direction and this move today gives Donald the opportunity to catch on with another team early on in the process. We thank him for his years with our organization and wish him the best in the future."

Just hours earlier it sounded like the Bills and Jones would reach an agreement on an extension. That didn't happen.

Jones posted a career-best 41 receptions, 443 yards and four touchdowns in 2012. He signed with the Bills as an undrafted rookie in 2010.

I guess the Bills were tired of being asked about Jones. The announcement removes all doubt. This should be one of many tweaks to the No. 21 scoring offense under the direction of new coach Doug Marrone.
