The team announced it has picked up the fifth-year option for the cornerback. The move should give him a $6.17 million salary for 2019, one that is guaranteed for injury, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport added.
"I think it'll be a good move for me and the team," Jones said last week via the team's official website. "As soon as [defensive backs coach Kris] Richard came in, that's what he was talking about, he wanted to move me to corner. We had a discussion and we made the move."
The 25-year-old has logged 177 total tackles, 24 passes defensed and two interceptions (one for a touchdown) and two forced fumbles in his three-year career.
