Another shot at the Canadian Football League for Jones

The Ottawa Renegades signed defensive back Daniel Jones yesterday.
Jones, who made it to the final training-camp cut with the Montreal Alouettes last season and later spent time on their practice roster, intercepted three passes in an exhibition game against the Renegades last year. The 23-year-old played cornerback for the Alouettes and was previously with the University of Nevada-Las Vegas Runnin' Rebels.
The Renegades also confirmed the signing of quarterback Paul Peterson and Canadian offensive lineman Marc Parenteau. Both addition were first reported by the Citizen earlier this year.
Also, the Renegades confirmed yesterday that they will be returning to Kemptville College for a fourth consecutive training camp. Camp begins on May 28 with medical examinations. Players are on the field the next day. The Renegades will remain in Kemptville until June 17, a day following their final exhibition game against the Montreal Alouettes.
"It boiled down to having a great location that is distraction free, which is what you want in training camp," general manager and head coach Joe Paopao said in a statement. "The focus and priority of the staff is football and the campus is the right size for that."
