Jones played in 22.06% of the Broncos defensive snaps this season and was used as a punt returner and kick returner on special teams.

During a late punt on Sunday against the Chargers Jones was replaced in favor of River Cracraft. Vance Joseph said on Monday when asked about the decision that Cracraft is “really sure-handed,” and that, “When it’s backed up like that, we put River in – or whoever is our most sure-handed returner.”
