The Bills announced Thursday that they will not tender WR Donald Jones, which makes him a free agent.

“We have made the decision not to re-sign Donald,” GM Buddy Nix said in a statement. “We’re going in a different direction and this move today gives Donald the opportunity to catch on with another team early on in the process. We thank him for his years with our organization and wish him the best in the future.”

Jones just finished his third NFL season and played in 12 games with 10 starts. He reached career-highs in receiving, recording 41 catches for 443 yards and four touchdowns.

Jones had an undisclosed medical condition that ended his 2012 season. He saw specialists in New York and has a new course of treatment for his condition moving forward, per the Bills. He has played in 35 career games with 22 starts and has 82 catches for 887 yards and six scores.
