Report: Receiver Jones visiting Patriots

By Field Yates

A day after signing free-agent wide receiver Danny Amendola, the Patriots will host former Bills wideout Donald Jones, according to Tim Graham of the Buffalo News.

Jones, 25, spent three years in Buffalo after being undrafted out of Youngstown State. The Bills declined to tender him as a restricted free agent this offseason, allowing him to hit the open market.

The 6-foot, 208-pound Jones set career highs in catches (43), yards (443) and touchdowns (4) in 2012, serving as one of Buffalo's secondary targets in their multiple-WR sets.

In two games against the Patriots in 2012, Jones totaled eight catches for 164 yards, including a touchdown in each contest; he had a career-long catch of 68 yards in the Week 4 matchup in Buffalo.

The Patriots have only Amendola and Brandon Lloyd as established wide receivers under contract for 2013.
