BOSTON (CBS)— According to a report from CBSBoston.com, the New England Patriots have released wide receiver Donald Jones. The announcement was made on Friday.

Jones, 25 years of age, caught 41 passes for 443 yards and four touchdowns last season before an undisclosed injury ended his campaign. TheBuffalo Bills let Jones become a free agent at the end of the season and the Patriots scooped him up, signing him to a three-year deal.

With the Patriots drafting Aaron Dobson and Josh Boyce in April, and with the signing of veteran Michael Jenkins, the receiving core has now become crowded and Jones did not fit into the calculation.

Jones played two seasons at Youngstown State with one in the role of wide receiver (2008). He caught 31 passes for 510 yards and seven touchdowns, and one of his better games came against Indiana State on November 8. He caught six passes for 75 yards and two touchdowns, with 23 yards being his longest reception of the day.

The Bills signed Jones as an undrafted free agent following the 2010 NFL Draft. His best season with the club came in 2012 as his 443 yards, 41 receptions, and four touchdowns were all career-highs for him.

Now, he is looking for a new job, and with his size (6-0) and talent, it should not be hard for him to find one.
