Broncos Release Adam Jones

The Broncos have released cornerback Adam Jones. The veteran disclosed the news himself on social media and Tom Pelissero of (Twitter link) has confirmed the transaction. 

Well ,Denver it was good,” Jones wrote on Instagram. “Thanks for the opportunity!!!! On to the next.

Jones, 35, hooked on with the Broncos late in the preseason. At the time, the Broncos saw him as a strong No. 4 cornerback and punt returner, but he hasn’t quite lived up to expectations. He’s done after seven games and ten punt returns for just 25 yards in total.

The Bengals declined Jones’ 2018 option earlier this year and he didn’t draw a ton of interest afterwards. Despite his past accomplishments, Jones was limited to just nine games with the Bengals in 2017 and didn’t fare particularly well on 299 defensive snaps. Pro Football Focus assigned Jones the worst mark (47.1) of his entire career, framing him more as a punt returner than a reliable corner.

Given his age and dropoff in performance, this could be the end of the line for Jones in the NFL.

    Bye bye moron. Now the league just needs to see his fellow Mensa Scholar Vontaze Burfict permanently unemployed.

      He hasn’t been in trouble for 10 years. It looks like he matured as he got older, so no reason to bash the guy.

      The Cowboys will sign him as the “booby price” in the Earl Thomas sweepstakes.
