                   === Bills will not tender Donald Jones ===
 
 Orchard Park, NY (Sports Network) - Wide receiver Donald Jones will not be re-
 signed by the Buffalo Bills.
 
 The  team announced  Thursday that they will not be tendering Jones, a 10-game
 starter this past season, a qualifying offer as a restricted free agent.
 
 "We have made the decision not to re-sign Donald," Bills general manager Buddy
 Nix  said.  "We're going  in a  different direction and  this move today gives
 Donald  the opportunity to catch on with another team early on in the process.
 We  thank him for his years with our organization and wish him the best in the
 future."
 
 Jones made the Bills as an undrafted college free agent in 2010 and started 22
 of   the  35  games  he  played  in  during  his  three-year  stint  with  the
 organization. The 25-year-old had his most productive campaign this past year,
 establishing   career  highs  in  catches  (41),  receiving  yards  (443)  and
 touchdowns (4) over 12 games.
 
 Over  his three seasons in Buffalo, Jones compiled 82 receptions for 887 yards
 with six touchdowns.
 
 Medical reasons may have played a part in the Bills' decision to part ways, as
 Jones  finished 2012  on  the non-football/illness  list  with an  undisclosed
 condition and was limited to eight games the previous year by an ankle injury.
