The Facts: Behind Kelvin Benjamin, who will pan out in the Bills' wide receiver room? Buffalo's No. 2 option is thought to be Jones, but off-the-field issues and a knee injury have hamstrung his progress ahead of 2018. Bills general manager Brandon Beane made it clear last week that when Jones returns to form, he won't be guaranteed a spot back in the starting lineup. "He's not just going to necessarily go right to the top of the line," Beane said. "He'll have to earn his way."
Diehards Line: A 2017 second-round pick out of East Carolina, Jones was inconsistent during his first year in the pros, only rarely flashing brilliance. He tallied just 27 receptions for 316 yards and two touchdowns. Even before undergoing knee surgery in May, the 23-year-old wideout was in the middle of an unnerving offseason. Jones underwent shoulder surgery in January, and he was arrested in March on a bizarre felony vandalism charge that was later dropped. Behind Benjamin and Jones on Buffalo's depth chart are Andre Holmes, Kaelin Clay, Jeremy Kerley, Brandon Reilly, Rod Streater, Quan Bray, Ray-Ray McCloud and undrafted free agents Robert Foster and Cam Phillips, all of whom saw first-team snaps during minicamp. If and when Jones returns to training camp healthy, perhaps he will secure the No. 2 role Buffalo drafted him to seize. But until then, the Bills are keeping their options open.
