Former Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones has been traded from the Buffalo Bills to the Los Angeles Chargers.

Jones, who led the Ohio State Buckeyes to the national championship in 2014, was selected by the Bills in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

He attempted 11 passes, completing six of them for 96 yards with one interception as a rookie this past season.

New Los Angeles head coach Anthony Lynn was the offensive coordinator for Buffalo last season, and was the interim head coach for the season finale. That was also the only game Jones appeared in as a rookie.

Jones will battle to be the backup to Philip Rivers, who is in his 14th year as a pro. Clearly, there aren’t too many years left for Rivers, and Jones could conceivably be a post-Rivers option.

Cardale Jones now joins fellow former Buckeyes Joey Bosa and Joshua Perry with the Chargers.
