Former Jaguar WR Matt Jones Wraps Up “Drug Court”

Former Jaguar Matt Jones still doesn’t have a team to play on for the 2009 season, but one good thing going for him is he’s at least done with the “drug court” that he had to go though after being arrested on a felony drug charge prior to last season.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports on Jones getting past the course:

Former Arkansas Razorbacks quarterback Matt Jones can focus on salvaging his NFL career now that his graduation from Washington County Drug Court has wiped away a felony drug charge. Circuit Court Judge Mary Ann Gunn warned Jones on Monday that since he has completed the program, drug court is no longer an option if he is arrested again. Drug court typically lasts between nine months and a year, but Jones was only “physically present” in Washington County’s program for 30 weeks.

Jones was suspended by the league last season, so he’ll probably be able to play the entire season without having to sit out any games. There were some rumors of the Cowboys having interest in him, but since then they have denied any and have moved on with the WR’s they have.
