Raiders shift Taiwan Jones from defense to offense
The Raiders drafted Jones as a running back in 2011 out of Eastern Washington, and the 26-year-old spent his first two NFL seasons as a reserve at the position and on special teams.
In 2013, Jones was moved to cornerback and he recorded 14 tackles and one forced fumble. He also had 26 kickoff returns for 623 yards on special teams.
Oakland signed Jones to a three-year extension in February 2014. He sustained a foot injury in the team's opener last season and missed the final 15 games.
In January, Oakland hired Jack Del Rio as its new head coach.
