Cardale Jones Reportedly Cried After Being Traded From Buffalo To Los Angeles

Cardale Jones is apparently quite happy to be out of Buffalo.

Former Ohio State signal-caller Cardale Jones was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, and it's fair to say that he didn't get much of an opportunity in his rookie season. Jones played in one game, finishing 6-of-11 for 96 yards with an interception.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, when Jones was traded from Buffalo to the Los Angeles Chargers earlier in the week, he cried "tears of joy."

It's safe to say that most players, if they're going to cry after hearing they've been traded, are doing it for the other reason.

Here's more, via Schefter:

"The Cardale Jones trade last night was very interesting because he gets traded to San Diego. When Buffalo brings him into the office to tell him that he's being traded to San Diego for a conditional seventh-round draft pick, he began crying. He began crying. He began crying tears of joy because he was so happy to be going to place where he felt like he was going to be wanted and appreciated. And, he worked with Philip Rivers before he was drafted and the Chargers' head coach is Anthony Lynn, who was in Buffalo last year, who knows Cardale."

Schefter added that someone called him last night to tell him that in time, Jones has "Pro Bowl" potential.

Jones won't start in Los Angeles - that's Philip Rivers' job. But it looks like he's going to be much happier in his new uniform.
