The New England Patriots have released WR Donald Jones. The team has also signed free-agent WR Perez Ashford and undrafted free-agent WR Quentin Sims. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Looks like the Patriots are still trying to figure out how they're going to replace the 77 percent of Tom Brady's receptions from a year ago that are no longer on the roster. Jones was a potential solution, but he must not have impressed Bill Belichick so New England looks set to give its bevy of young, untested wideouts a shot at significant roles in Brady's receiver rotation.

The New England Patriots have signed free-agent WR Donald Jones to an undisclosed deal.
Huddle Up: The former Bill didn't exactly distinguish himself as Stevie Johnson's running mate in Buffalo, but he'll get an opportunity to tweak his old team twice a year as a target for Tom Brady.

Free-agent WR Donald Jones said he was surprised that the Buffalo Bills did not tender him an offer but it will give him a chance to join another team. 'It was pretty upsetting to get the call today,' Jones said. 'It kind of was a shock. But it is what it is. Now me and my family will move forward to another team and hopefully I get to play against the Bills.'
Huddle Up: Jones had a career season in 2012 (41-443-4) and has improved his numbers in each of his 3 seasons, but it obviously wasn't enough for the Bills, who will be in the market for another starter opposite Steve Johnson.
