Sidney Jones, who was an All-Pac-12 cornerback at the University of Washington, is back in Seattle.

The Seahawks acquired Jones in a trade with the Jaguars, sending a sixth-round pick to Jacksonville as compensation.

Jones, who is 6-foot, 186 pounds, was a two-time first-team All-Pac-12 selection, and in 2015 he led the Pac-12 in passes defensed with 14, then in 2016 he scored three defensive touchdowns, two interception returns and one fumble return. In three seasons at Washington, Jones tallied nine interceptions, 30 passes defensed, 145 tackles and six forced fumbles.

Jones was considered a first-round pick when he declared for the draft, but tore his Achilles at Washington's Pro Day and ended up being selected by Philadelphia in the second round. After playing only one game as a rookie due to the injury, Jones started eight of 23 games played over next two years before being waived prior to the start of the 2020 season. With Jacksonville last season, Jones started six games and appeared in nine. In 31 career games, Jones has four interceptions, 19 passes defensed and one fumble recovery.
