Denver claims receiver off waivers from K.C.

Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

The Broncos claimed receiver C.J. Jones off waivers from Kansas City.

Jones has New England ties, where he played for new Broncos coach Josh McDaniels.

Jones was on New England's active roster for one game in 2008. He was on New England's practice squad for the entire 2007 season.

Former New England executive and new Kansas City general manager Scott Pioli signed Jones in March, but he was waived last week. While Jones clearly intrigues McDaniels, he has to be considered a long shot to make Denver's 53-man roster.
