The Arizona Cardinals on Friday signed offensive lineman Braylon Jones at their Tempe training center, the team announced.
Jones signed a one-year deal, his agent announced on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter.
The lineman most recently played for the USFL’s Houston Gamblers. The Cardinals have been active at scanning the USFL for talent under first-year general manager Monti Ossenfort. Former USFL receivers Kaden Davis and Davion Davis are currently on the preseason roster.
Jones also has spent time on the Dallas Cowboys’ roster since going pro in 2020 but hasn’t appeared in an NFL game.
With experience at guard and center, Jones played in college for the Houston Cougars from 2016-20. He spent four of those campaigns alongside current Cardinals tackle Josh Jones.
Braylon Jones joins an Arizona offensive line that includes Elijah Wilkinson listed on the depth chart as the starting left guard and Will Hernandez tabbed as the first-string right guard. Dennis Daley, Marquis Hayes, Lecitus Smith and Lachavious Simmons are listed as the depth at guard.
Hjalte Froholdt is expected to start at center, with rookie Jon Gaines II listed immediately behind him on the depth chart.
