The Los Angeles Chargers signed veteran punter Donnie Jones, the organization announced on Tuesday. In a corresponding move, P Drew Kaser was waived.

Jones tallied 1,110 punts over his career for 50,500 total yards and 44,141 net yards, which averages out to 45.5 yards per punt with a net average of 39.8. Jones has also landed 364 punts inside the 20 and has a career-long of 80 yards. He previously teamed up with Chargers kicker Caleb Sturgis while with the Eagles, serving as his holder.

A two-time second-team All-Pro selection, the LSU product initially entered the NFL as a seventh- round pick (224th overall) of the Seattle Seahawks in the 2004 NFL Draft. He also spent time with the Miami Dolphins, St. Louis Rams and Houston Texans before joining the Eagles in 2013.
