Cardinals signing veteran wide receiver Zay Jones to 1-year deal worth up to $4.25M

The Zay Jones visit circuit ends with a job in the desert.

Jones is signing with the Arizona Cardinals on a one-year deal worth up to $4.25 million, NFL Network Insiders Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero reported on Friday, per sources informed of the pact.

Following his post-draft release from the Jacksonville Jaguars, Jones visited with Arizona, the Tennessee Titans, the Dallas Cowboys, and the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Cards are a logical landing spot for Jones to carve out a role in 2024.

No. 4 overall pick Marvin Harrison Jr. profiles as Arizona's No. 1 target off the bat, but there's room for production behind the rookie. Michael Wilson, Greg Dortch, Zach Pascal, Chris Moore, and sixth-rounder Tejhaun Palmer round out the top of the depth chart.

Jones generated 1,144 yards and seven touchdowns in two seasons with Jacksonville on 116 catches but is coming off a down season in 2023.

The 29-year-old profiles mostly as a boundary receiver in Arizona who owns the flexibility to slide into the slot.

Arizona entered the draft with clear needs at the receiver position. They solved a massive piece by drafting Harrison Jr. Then in the aftermath picked up a solid piece to help round out the corps.
