The Los Angeles Chargers announced Wednesday that they have signed former LSU and Philadelphia Eagles punter Donnie Jones who recently retired in February.

The Baton Rouge native played at LSU 2000-2003 and was a part of 2003 National Championship team that beat Oklahoma in the BCS National Championship. He won a Super Bowl with the Eagles last season. Per The Chargers:

The 38-year old Jones is one of the top punters over the last two decades, and returns for his 15th season in 2018 after temporarily retiring. He announced his intention to hang up his cleats after winning the Super Bowl last year with the Philadelphia Eagles. However, he had a change of heart, and now joins the Bolts.

Jones has booted 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.
