The Broncos were awarded wide receiver C.J. Jones off waivers from Kansas City, the team announced on Wednesday.
Jones is a third-year wideout who has spent time on the active roster with Cleveland in 2003 and the practice squad with the Browns in 2003-04. The move reunites the 5-11, 195-pound receiver with Head Coach Josh McDaniels, as Jones spent time on New England’s active roster in 2008 and spent the entire 2007 season on the Patriot’s practice squad.
Jones played collegiate ball at the University of Iowa. A two-year starter for the Hawkeyes, Jones totaled 72 catches for 902 yards and 10 touchdowns in 24 games. During his senior campaign, Jones set an Orange Bowl record when he returned the opening kickoff 101 yards for a touchdown against USC.
