The Bills have traded wide receiver Zay Jones to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for a 2021 5th round pick.

The trade was first reported Monday night by NFL insider Chris Mortensen. This comes days after the Bills promoted wide receiver Duke Williams to the active roster. Williams out-snapped Jones 51-1 during the Bills 14-7 win over the Titans.

Jones was drafted by the Bills 37th overall in the 2nd round of the 2017 NFL Draft. This season, Jones appeared in all five games for Buffalo, with two starts. The wide receiver had 7 receptions for 69 yards this season.

In his career with the Bills, Jones appeared in 36 games, hauling in 90 receptions for 1,037 yards and 9 touchdowns. The wide receiver led the Bills in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns in 2018.

The Bills also signed RB Senorise Perry Tuesday. Perry was signed during the off-season in free agency. However, the RB suffered a quad injury in the final game of the preseason, and was placed on injured reserve. He was eventually released in an injury settlement.
