Bengals Ink Former Jags Troubled WR Matt Jones

As rumored yesterday, the Bengals signed WR Matt Jones today according to Chris Mortensen at ESPN. Mort claims the Bengals gave the former Jacksonville Jaguar first round pick a one-year deal worth roughly $700,000. Tennessee also had offered Jones a contract.

The PFT report can be read here.

Hobson confirms that the Bengals did work him out yesterday, along with fomer OSU Buckeye QB Todd Boeckman and (gulp) DB Adam “Pacman” Jones. Apparently Boeckman and Pacman left Cincy without a deal….yet. The Hobson article also gives a good review of Matt’s past transgressions, and how his stats compare to that of the late Chris Henry.

So looks like Mike Brown has his latest reclamation project.

What do you think about this move? PFT seems to think it’s a good one for the Bengals, and was very complimentary of his performance in 2008. I’m on the fence. Give us your thoughts by leaving a comment!

    He’ll win a game or two for the Bengals. Play action will give him one on one against a 5’9er. Good move
