The five-year veteran was part of the Jaguars’ free agency haul this offseason in hopes of bridging the gap between them and the rest of the AFC South.
Jones is coming off a strong 2021 season with 47 receptions for 546 yards and a touchdown.
However, as he shared in this video, he would like to be a part of something special in Jacksonville.

Jones said while walking towards the Jaguars’ practice facility, “I feel great, man. Waking up, first day on the job. Time to get it, turn this thing around. Future-focused. Duuuval!”
Jones’ best performance came in 2018 when he had 652 yards and seven touchdowns for the Buffalo Bills.
The former East Carolina standout hopes to equal or surpass those numbers to become a steady fixture in Jacksonville.
A New Era Of Jaguars Football
The Jaguars went through a lot last season, mainly because of former head coach Urban Meyer.
But with him gone, the team can refocus under head coach Doug Pederson.
The team’s faithful hope that the former NFL quarterback can replicate the Super Bowl victory he brought to the Philadelphia Eagles in Jacksonville.
It might take time before that happens, but having quarterback Trevor Lawrence is a step in the right direction.
The team hopes that these additions and draft selections will help them end their four-season postseason drought.
