Oregon State receiver Walter Jones has been granted his release and intends to transfer to a new school to run track, while tight end Tyler Perry is retiring from football due to multiple injuries, a program spokesperson told The Oregonian Monday.

Both players were expected to be contributors for the Beavers in 2014.

Jones, a redshirt freshman, took second-team reps behind Victor Bolden at flanker during spring practice and recorded three catches for nine yards in the spring game last month. Jones has always been lauded for his speed -- he was a sprinter and long jumper for the Beavers during this past indoor season -- but worked on the football scout team during his redshirt season in 2013.

Perry, a senior, played in 16 games in three seasons, including one start, and tallied seven catches for 58 yards.
