Retired WR Donald Jones underwent a kidney transplant in December, and is now playing baseball for the Atlantic League's Somerset (N.J.) Patriots.
Still only 26, Jones' kidney issues forced his retirement last August. It appears it will be permanent. Jones finished his football career with 82 catches for 887 yards and six touchdowns across 35 games. Thu, Apr 17, 2014 10:13:00 PM

Retired WR Donald Jones may require a kidney transplant after receiving a "major scare" during an August workout for the Colts.

As Jones was on a treadmill taking a stress test, his blood pressure skyrocketed to 250 over 110. "That," said Jones, "was definitely a new thing." Jones is consulting with former basketball player Alonzo Mourning, who had a kidney transplant in 2003 and returned to play hoops. Jones is only 25 years old.

Ex-Bills WR Donald Jones has decided to retire because of a kidney disorder.

The ailment landed Jones on the non-football/illness list last season. Only 25, Jones hinted he could still play, but has decided to hang it up out of deference to his health and family. Jones signed with the Patriots in March, but was released before camp. A 2010 undrafted free agent, Jones finishes his career with 82 catches for 887 yards and six touchdowns across 35 games.

Free agent WR Donald Jones will work out for the Titans Tuesday and the Colts Wednesday.

The Titans are overloaded at wideout with Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright, Nate Washington, Justin Hunter and Kevin Walter. They're just updating their emergency list. The Colts could be looking for someone to act as a No. 4 wideout while LaVon Brazill serves his four-game suspension.

Patriots waived WR Donald Jones.

According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the Patriots "want to get their young guys reps." Jones signed a three-year contract with New England in March, but the deal contained no guaranteed money. This move would seem to improve veteran Molasses Michael Jenkins' chances of making the final 53-man roster.

ESPN Boston anticipates Donald Jones and Michael Jenkins competing for one roster spot in New England.

Jones signed a three-year contract and Jenkins inked for one season, but neither player has any guaranteed money. With Aaron Dobson and Josh Boyce added in the draft and Julian Edelman re-signed behind Danny Amendola, the Pats have one receiver spot available. Matt Slater will make it on special teams.

Patriots agreed to terms with WR Donald Jones, formerly of the Bills, on a three-year contract.

Jones was a restricted free agent who wasn't tendered by Buffalo. He's the second receiver the Pats have signed since letting Wes Welker walk, but unlike Danny Amendola, he won't be guaranteed a roster spot. Jones is still only 25, but has never been particularly productive. He has just 82 catches in 35 career games. Jones also has a long injury history, missing a combined 12 contests the past two seasons. He's in a better situation going from Ryan Fitzpatrick to Tom Brady, but is unlikely to be a major fantasy factor. Jones is a role-type player who blocks well and can function at multiple receiver spots.

Free agent WR Donald Jones will visit the Patriots Thursday.

The overhaul of the Patriots' receiving corps continues. With Brandon Lloyd's future murky and no depth behind him, they need to start adding outside receivers. Jones isn't overwhelmingly talented and has missed 12 games over the last two years, but is just 25 and fits as a No. 3 or 4 wideout. In two games against the Patriots last year, he totaled eight catches for 164 yards and two touchdowns.

The Bills have declined to tender WR Donald Jones, making him an unrestricted free agent.

The Bills were reportedly working on an extension with Jones as recently as Thursday morning, but talks obviously didn't go anywhere. Jones was a restricted free agent, meaning the Bills could have tendered him a one-year qualifying offer, and had the right to match any offer in free agency. In their parting statement, the Bills also announced the illness that landed Jones on the non-football/illness list in December was a "medical condition that he’s had since college." Jones is still only 25 and caught a career-high 41 passes in 12 games last season, but his injury history could limit his market in a crowded year for receivers.

A source tells WGR 550 that the Bills are working on a contract extension with impending restricted free agent Donald Jones.

Instead of slapping Jones with a one-year tender, they're interested in locking him up with a long-term deal. The former undrafted free agent out of Youngstown State is coming off his best NFL season as he posted 41 catches for 443 yards and four touchdowns. Jones best fits as a No. 3 or 4 wideout behind Stevie Johnson and a play-making wideout the Bills bring in.

Bills WR Donald Jones (non-football/illness list) is confident that he will be "back in May and ready to go" for OTAs.

Jones has kept the illness private, though it's believed to be a minor kidney disorder. He insists the issue has never hampered him "football-wide," and the only reason he was shut down in December was because the medicine weighed him down. "It's nothing life-threatening or anything like that," added Jones, a restricted a free agent.

The Bills placed WR Donald Jones on the non-football/illness list due to a mystery illness.

Jones said the condition is "not career-threatening at all" and that it's something he has been "dealing with for years." He told the Buffalo News last year that a "minor kidney disorder" discovered during the 2010 NFL Combine kept him off some teams' draft boards; Jones was not selected out of Youngstown State. It's uncertain if Jones is currently dealing with the same ailment.

Bills placed WR Donald Jones (calf) on the season-ending non-football/illness list.

The calf injury has kept Jones out of the lineup in two of the past three games. "It's been bothering him off and on," said coach Chan Gailey. "It shows up and doesn't show up." Jones finishes the season with 41 catches for 443 yards and four touchdowns. He's a restricted free agent in 2013. Jones may have started his last game in Buffalo, as GM Buddy Nix had made it clear that a true No. 1 wide receiver is near the top of his offseason wish list.

Bills declared WR Donald Jones (calf) inactive for Sunday's Week 15 game against the Seahawks.

Jones can't get over the hump with this nagging calf strain. It gives T.J. Graham another chance to start opposite Stevie Johnson. The rest of the Bills' inactives: QB Tarvaris Jackson, CB Leodis McKelvin, CB T.J. Heath, DL Jay Ross, C Eric Wood and OL Chris Scott.
Sun, Dec 16, 2012 02:39:00 PM

Although he got in a full week of practice, Donald Jones (calf) is questionable for Week 15.

Jones is going to play against the Seahawks in Toronto, but will be a bottom-of-the-barrel WR4/5. He's Rotoworld's No. 58 receiver for Week 15.
