The Oakland Raiders announced that they have signed cornerback Taiwan Jones to a three-year extension worth $4.355 million, according to Fox Sports' Mike Garafalo.

The former fourth round pick spent his first two seasons in the league as a running back before being converted to a cornerback prior to the 2013 season. He also played on special teams last season.

Jones says he hopes to be a Pro-Bowl caliber defender in 2014.

"I feel good about next year. Obviously, I was able to do a lot of good things on special teams last year. Unfortunately, I didn’t make the Pro Bowl last year, but that is something I’m shooting for this year.”

Jones was set to become a free agent after the 2014 season when his rookie contract expired, but will now remain with Oakland through 2017.
