Zay Jones Signs One Year Deal with Cardinals
1 week ago

The Arizona Cardinals have signed Zay Jones to a one year deal worth up to $4.25 million.

Jones struggled to stay on the field with the Jaguars in 2023 due to a knee injury, only playing 9 games. He also encountered legal charges last year that ultimately ended up getting dropped, but may have impacted the Jaguars decision to move on from him earlier this offseason. Jones will look for a fresh start in Arizona, and should have the opportunity to be a key contributor in their receiving room.

 

The Cardinals desperately needed to add Wide Receiver depth this offseason after the departure of Hollywood Brown and Rondale Moore. Drafting Marvin Harrison Jr. with the 4th pick was a great start, and now the addition of Zay Jones should have Cardinals fans and Kyler Murray fantasy mangers extremely optimistic for offensive fireworks in the desert this season.

 

Jones will be competing with 2nd year receiver Michael Wilson for Wide Receiver 2 duties in the Cardinals offense. Wilson primarily projects as a perimeter receiver, and we can expect Jones, Harrison Jr., and Greg Dortch to all take snaps from the slot in 2024. Jones has versatility and athleticism that make him an intriguing fantasy option at the later round of best ball and redraft leagues if he can stay healthy.
