After two years helping contribute to the Jacksonville Jaguars' turnaround, wide receiver Zay Jones reportedly has a new home.

Jones is signing with the Arizona Cardinals, according to a Friday afternoon report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Per Rapoport, Jones visited the Dallas Cowboys, Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans before agreeing to join the Cardinals.

In nine games with the Jaguars in 2023, Jones caught 34 passes for 321 yards and two touchdowns. That followed the best season of his career in 2022—an 82-catch, 823-yard, five-touchdown outing for a Jacksonville team that went 9-8 and won the AFC South.

Jones appears set to join an Arizona position group that includes wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr., the fourth overall pick of the NFL draft.

This coming season will be Jones's seventh in the league; in addition to his Jaguars years, the ex-East Carolina star has spent time with the Buffalo Bills and Las Vegas Raiders.
