“Kenwyne is a player we have known about and watched for a long time,” said Atlanta United technical director Carlos Bocanegra.
“He is a big physical forward who can punish you in the air or behind the defence. We’re very happy that the timing worked out and we were able to acquire him during this transfer window.”
Bocanegra added: “Kenwyne is a well-known player in the region, with top level production and experience in England and for the Trinidad and Tobago National Team. He is an absolute handful for defenders.”
Jones was out of contract, having left Cardiff City. He was most recently on loan at UAE-based club Al Jazira.
