Cardale Jones Signed To Seattle Seahawks Practice Squad

It looks like former Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Cardale Jones will pass on the XFL. He was cut recently by the Chargers and has signed with the Seattle Seahawks.

Jones will not be part of the 53 man roster as he was placed on the practice squad just like he was last year with LA. A lateral move at best.

There was no way of unseating current Chargers starting QB Philip Rivers. Rivers will turn 38 years old this season and doesn’t look like he is thinking about retirement anytime soon.

Seattle Seahawks current starting QB is Russell Wilson. Wilson signed a four-year, $140 million contract extension with the Seahawks, making him the highest-paid player in the NFL. He is only 30 years old and doesn’t look like he is thinking about retirement anytime soon.

It is unclear why the 26-year-old Jones potentially passed on an opportunity with the XFL. He was the talk of the NFL pre-season because of how well he played. Los Angeles Wildcats offensive coordinator Norm Chow even spoke highly of the former Ohio State Buckeye.

Game tape is highly important for fringe players to get noticed by NFL GMs. Playing on the practice squad gets you none. Playing in the XFL will get you the game tape you need. Just ask the former AAF players who are now on active NFL rosters.

So far Landry Jones has been the only official tier 1 QB signed to the XFL. With the XFL draft only a month away, look for the XFL to announce more tier 1 QB signings soon.
