The New England Patriots had their fill of Donald Jones, but the fourth-year wide receiver might not be unemployed for long.
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that Jones is heading to Tennessee on Tuesday to work out with the Titans. Jones will visit the Indianapolis Colts on Wednesday. Rapoport also was told that three additional teams were lining up visits with Jones, per a source informed of Jones' plans.
This came less than a week after the Patriots released Jones, reportedly in an effort to give their younger receivers more reps in training camp.
Making a dent in the Titans' roster will be a challenge for Jones. Kenny Britt, Nate Washington and Kendall Wright head up a crowded pass-catching group, with Kevin Walter and rookie Justin Hunter in support.
The Colts are a more realistic option with LaVon Brazill facing a four-game suspension to start the season, but Jones doesn't loom as starting material for either club.

Patriots cut WR Donald Jones

Journal Staff Reports
The Patriots have released veteran wide receiver Donald Jones, the team announced today.
New England signed the 25-year-old Jones in March, after he had been nontendered by the Buffalo Bills. He had 41 catches for 443 yards and four touchdowns last season, the third of his career, all spent with Buffalo.
His departure means the Patriots will head to training camp with only three experienced wide receivers on the roster: Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman and Michael Jenkins. The Pats did select two wide receivers in the 2013 draft: second-round pick Aaron Dobson and fourth-round pick Josh Boyce.
In addition to releasing Jones, the Patriots announced that they had signed two undrafted rookie wide receivers. They are Perez Ashford, from Northern Illinois, and Quentin Sims, from Tennessee-Martin.
