It looks like Jaguars WR Matt Jones is going to eventually get cut. Considering his intangibles and Jacksonville’s anemic passing game over the years, why wouldn’t we take a chance on the big, speedy project? Before you scoff, remember Eddie Kennison, a bust before he donned the Red and Gold. I think Jones would be a good fit for Chan Gailey and the Chiefs‘ ball control offense. I’m not saying he’s T.O. or even D-Bo by any means, but he still has tremendous upside potential (or TUP to NBA fans, you’ll hear that phrase a ton with the NBA Draft approaching).
It’s still early, but the way receivers Troy Williamson and Mike Walker have been performing for the Jaguars this spring, the often-injured Matt Jones is going to need an eye-opening training camp to make the roster. Jones’ toughest hurdle is he won’t get the same benefit of doubt from the coaching staff that he received in the past.
From Arkansas Sports 360 (about the Cowboys looking at him):
But here are some numbers that would certainly justify taking a long look at Jones: 6-6, 238 pounds, 25 years old, 4.37 40-yard dash and a 39.5-inch vertical leap.
