The Buffalo Bills extended defensive tackle DaQuan Jones with a two-year contract during the early stages of the 2024 free agency period.

Jones, aged 32, has been a consistent presence for Buffalo, featuring in 23 games and starting all of them over the past two seasons. However, his playing time was limited to seven games in the previous season, including two postseason appearances.

After leaving the Carolina Panthers in the 2022 offseason, Jones joined the Bills.

As per current information, Jones’ new contract is valued at $16 million in total, with $10.5 million guaranteed. Additionally, there are performance-based incentives included, potentially raising the contract’s value to a maximum of $18 million.

Further details reveal that Jones received a $5 million signing bonus as part of the $10.5 million guaranteed. An additional $2.5 million is allocated for 2024, with the remainder of Jones’ guaranteed money being his salary for that year.

DaQuan Jones is confirmed to be with the Buffalo Bills for the upcoming season, but there is a potential exit clause in the second year of his contract.

In terms of salary cap impact, Jones will count as a $6.3 million hit in 2024, and this figure increases to $9 million in the following year. However, if Jones were to be cut, the dead-cap hits for those two seasons would be $10.5 million and $6 million, respectively.

While the contract locks Jones into the roster for 2024, the Bills could save $3 million against the salary cap in 2025 if they decide to release him. Additionally, there are two void years included in his deal in 2026 and 2027, with minimal cap hits of $2.5 million and $1.25 million, respectively.
