Jones' staunchest supporters left Western New York when Lynn departed for Los Angeles and general manager Doug Whaley lost his job in late April.
It's no surprise that the former Ohio State star is headed to Southern California. Although Jones struggled in offseason practices as a rookie, he made quite an impression on Lynn, the Bills' 2016 offensive coordinator-turned-interim head coach.
"He's picked up the offense well," Lynn told the Buffalo News last December. "He's in meetings with all the other quarterbacks. He comes early. He leaves late. I've been very satisfied with his work ethic.
"It's hard, you know, without seeing a guy in a game. But you watch him in practice. You watch him in individual drills. You watch his footwork and his arm strength. He's what you want waiting on the runway."
While Jones boasts all of the physical tools to succeed in the NFL, he remains a developmental prospect with just 11 regular-season passes under his belt. After the Bolts worked outRobert Griffin III on Tuesday, however, it's fair to wonder if Lynn is seeking competition for No. 2 quarterback Kellen Clemens.
