Cardale Jones is back in professional football. He will be replacing one of his former teammates, as well.

Friday, the Edmonton Elks of the Canadian Football League announced the signing of Jones. He will be replacing another former Ohio State QB, JT Barrett.

Barrett was added to the “retired list,” according to a statement from Edmonton. He sustained an injury and will not be available for the 2022 season.

Jones has bounced around the NFL, XFL and now the CFL. He was initially taken by the Buffalo Bills in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He spent that year with the organization and then joined the Los Angeles Chargers for the 2017 and 2018 seasons.

Jones then had a brief stop with the Seattle Seahawks before signing on with the XFL’s DC Defenders in 2020.

During his final two seasons at Ohio State, Jones threw for 2,323 yards and 15 touchdowns with 7 interceptions. He also accounted for 617 yards and 4 touchdowns.
