New England Patriots DE Chandler Jones was traded to the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday, March 15, in exchange for Cardinals OG Jonathan Cooper and a second-round draft pick.
Huddle Up: Jones finished fifth in the league with 12.5 sacks a season ago and gives the Cards' D the edge rusher it's been lacking.

New England Patriots DE Chandler Jones (hip), OT Sebastian Vollmer (shoulder), LB Jerod Mayo (knee) and LB Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) are all candidates to start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Huddle Up: IDP league owners will need to keep an eye on Jones, who has had 17.5 sacks in 26 games over the last two seasons, and see if he can get right before the games that count begin.

New England Patriots DE Chandler Jones did not practice Tuesday, Oct. 21 with a hip injury, according to a source. Jones is expected to miss a month or so. The team traded for LB Akeem Ayers earlier Tuesday.
Huddle Up: Another blow for the Pats' defense as Jones has 26 total tackles and, most importantly, a team-high 4.5 sacks and 15 QB hurries. The timing is particularly troubling as N.E. is entering a brutal stretch of opposing passers that features Jay Cutler, Peyton Manning, Andrew Luck, Matthew Stafford, Aaron Rodgers and Philip Rivers over the next 6 games.

New England Patriots DE Chandler Jones could have a monster year if the team can reduce his snap count. He had 11.5 sacks and played more than 90 percent of the defensive snaps last season. DE Will Smith was brought in to help keep Jones fresh.
Huddle Up: Jones went from 6 sacks to 11.5 and from 45 total tackles to 82 last year, and similar production leaps this season will easily place him among the defensive-line IDP leaders. Keep this in mind if you somehow notice him lingering too long in your upcoming drafts.

New England Patriots DE Chandler Jones (ankle) practiced Saturday, Dec. 8, and is expected to play in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Good news for the Pats' defense, which will need all hands on deck against the high-scoring Texans.
