Jones was claimed off waivers from the Dolphins in November of last year. He went on to start in all six of his games played for SF, racking up 17 tackles in total. After losing the entire 2015 season to a torn calf muscle, Jones proved that he’s back to 100% by appearing in 13 total games for San Francisco and Miami.
The 49ers currently project to start Earl Mitchell next to rising sophomore DeForest Buckner in the middle. Jones will join Quinton Dial and Mike Purcell on the bench, if he makes the final 53-man roster.
