On Thursday, Jones landed with Flowers’ old club.
The Chiefs announced today they had been awarded Jones on waivers from San Diego. A first-year pro from Rutgers, Jones (6-1, 187) will compete for a reserve role with the Chiefs.
Jones was a collegiate teammate of Chiefs corner Marcus Cooper, who appeared in all 16 games for Kansas City in 2013. As a senior at Rutgers, Jones intercepted five passes.
Jones, 24, spent a stint on the Chargers’ practice squad in 2013. He did not appear in any regular season games.
