Jaguars sign free agent QB Jones
Jones gives the Jaguars insurance for starter Blake Bortles, who is dealing with a left shoulder injury but is expected to start against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 10 after the bye week.
Bortles, who is right handed, would be making his 70th consecutive start.
Jones was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers in September after five years as the backup to Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers took him n the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
In 19 career games, including five starts, Jones has completed 108 of 169 passes for 1,310 yards with eight touchdowns and seven interceptions.
The Jaguars are 3-5 after a 24-18 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. They face the Steelers in Week 11.
