Levi Jones won’t sign until after camps start

Looks like free agent OT Levi Jones will not sign with an NFL team until after training camps are open.

That according to his agent per the Arizona Republic. Jones’ agent confirmed to that paper that the Cardinals are interested in Jones, but do not want to pay him starter money.

“They (the Cardinals) wanted to sign him a while ago but it’s not in his best interest unless the contract they gave him guarantees that he would be paid commensurate with how much he was going to play,” his agent Ken Zuckerman told the Arizona Republic.

The Jones camp believes he deserves starter money, since he’s probably good enough in their eyes to be a starter on several NFL teams.

But with no team ready to promise that, Jones has decided to bide his time and wait for a training camp injury at the tackle position when his value on the market will be significantly increased.
