The Washington Redskins have made a significant splash in the draft with the acquisition of cornerback Adam Jones, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The Redskins traded their first-round pick and their second-rounder to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for Jones, who had been one of the league’s most promising corners.
Jones, 23, has spent time on the Ravens’ practice squad, the Ravens recently waived cornerback T.J. McDonald and cornerback D.J., the league confirmed on Monday.
The Raiders were also willing to part with their second round pick to land Jones, per a source.
Jones was a sixth-round draft pick in 2015.
Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie has a long history of developing talent in the secondary.
He has selected five players in the first four rounds in the past two drafts, including cornerback Jalen Ramsey, safety Rashad Johnson and linebacker Khalil Mack.
Jones has a career of 44 interceptions and 1,063 pass breakups over his four-year career.
He made his NFL debut with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2017.
The second-year player from the University of Florida is listed at 6-foot-2, 215 pounds.
