Former First-Round Pick Matt Jones on the Way Out of J-Ville?


Pro Football Weekly is reporting that it’s basically a done deal that the Jacksonville Jaguars are going to say “so long” to former first-round pick wide out Matt Jones. The paper says that one inside source says that the team will probably keep Jones around for training camp, but that he would need to have a monster camp in order to stick around and make the team. Last season Jones had just 24 catches in 12 games for 317 yards with four touchdowns.

In his short career, he has played in 42 games, making just 101 catches for 1392 yards and 13 touchdowns. Another reason why Jones will likely be gone is that the team has already been revamping its wide out core this past offseason. The team has made moves to get Jerry Porter from the Raiders via free agency, and then also made a trade to get Troy Williamson from Minnesota. All this seems to point to Jones being let go by late summer.

    Will be interested where he goes. Has all the tools just has to put it together.

    I hope they do let him go to a team that will use his talents, maybe the Cowboys. He didn’t get much support from the coaching staff, so how could he have a good attitude. They don’t deserve him. My wish is for him to go to the Cowboys–he can be dangerous in the Red Zone.
