After six years with the Oakland Raiders, Jones spent 2017 and 2018 with the Bills, mainly playing special teams. He signed with the Houston Texans as an unrestricted free agent last offseason, where he made the critical catch and run in overtime of the teams' playoff game that set the Texans up to win the game.

In 2018, Jones was involved in a scary collision in the end zone during the Bills' home game against the Los Angeles Chargers. His helmet came off and he was hit by another player. Jones was down on the turf bleeding for several minutes being tended to by doctors and trainers. Thankfully, he was able to walk off on his own power and even played the following week.

Taiwan Jones once gave up his forehead for the Bills. Now he's coming back. Tough dude. Really good person. Look forward to covering him again.
