Raiders to Release Running Back Taiwan Jones

BleacherReport

The Raiders have released running back Taiwan Jones, a player who has had only 44 carries in his six years with the club.

Jones was mostly known for beinga special teams player, but last season didn’t even get that much playing time on special teams.

Overall he returned 26 kicks for the Raiders in 2013 and 31 kicks in 2015. Last year, he did just eight kick returns with a lackluster 14.0 yards per attempt average.

He was selected in the fourth round of the 2011 draft. The team had him switch to cornerback for a time, but he was moved back to running back for the 2015 season.
