Eagles claim D.J. Jones off waivers from Ravens

February 07, 2012|By Matt Vensel

The Philadelphia Eagles have claimed D.J. Jones off waivers from the Ravens, who waived the undrafted rookie offensive tackle from Nebraska before their win over the Houston Texans in the AFC divisional round.

Jones was waived on Jan. 14 so the Ravens could promote linebacker Josh Bynes from their practice squad.

Jones, 23, a 6-foot-5, 315-pound tackle, was signed by the Miami Dolphins before the 2011 season. After the Dolphins waived him from their practice squad on Oct. 17, the Ravens signed him to theirs two days later. He was promoted to the 53-man roster in Week 17, but he didn’t play in the season-ending victory in Cincinnati.

The Eagles on Tuesday announced on Twitter that they had claimed Jones.
