Cardale Jones hasn't quite had the chance to get his NFL career off the ground, and unfortunately for the former Ohio State signal-caller, his big break won't be happening in Seattle.

After signing with the Seahawks' practice squad earlier this month, Jones was cut by his third NFL team following stops in Buffalo and Los Angeles.

Jones has played just one game in his three-year professional career, throwing 6-for-11 with an interception as a Bills player back in 2016. After being traded to the Chargers for a conditional draft pick, Jones was relegated to the practice squad and a reserve contract before being released this past August.

The 2014 Big Ten Championship Game MVP and College Football Playoff national champion could surely find himself on another practice squad roster after an impressive preseason (or possibly even look to the XFL as an alternative career route).

With the Jets losing Sam Darnold indefinitely and Ben Roethlisberger scheduled to miss the Steelers' entire season, perhaps the 26-year-old could find more luck going back to the east coast, too.
