Re: Matt Jones (Jags) arrested for Coke possesion.

Well what he did was stupid but it not the end of the world. There have been some good player and good people who get involved in drugs. With that kind of money at that young age it could be very easy to get caught up into drugs. Now if he was causing harm to other people then my view would be different but I think he will play again in the NFL.

Oh he'll play again in the NFL as long as he stays clean, it just probably won't be for the Jags.

I wouldn't give the guy a look. Del Rio left him inactive for several games last year in response to Jones's poor work ethic. And now he has a drug arrest on his resume - The last thing we need is an unproductive WR with questionable character.

Jones was a terrible pick. How do you make a converted college QB your 1st round draft pick?? Someone should get fired for that. He is the classic example that the combine is 90% garbage.
he had character flags and wasn't a very safe pick, but JAX bought into the hype. mike wiliams and reggie bush had the same deal (though reggie might figure it out still). you can search back and see posts here pre draft and see. i called reggie bush the best WR of the draft and jones-drew the best RB value, so the combine isn't worthless (it really helped jones-drew), but you can't base your draft on the combine alone. research is important.

QB to WR conversions just don't work that well. hines ward did it, but ARE isn't really anything more than average, same with jones, and i can't even remember any others.

I don't think the NFL will suspend him, They should....

If he's never failed a drug test, they will probably have to throw him into the drug program.

coke's pretty serious... i hope it's at least 4 games.

as far as kevin faulk's minor pot thing as a concert... it's stupid of him to get caught in public, but it's still a nonstory.

When it comes to drugs I believe they have set rules to go by and thats what will happen. I do believe the rule is like 4 games for 1st time.

Ronald Curry was on his way to being a really good wr for oak. but he's had 2 big injuries. Brad Smith of the Jets is decent but not a starter.

I think Jones was at some point doing well & looking like he could become a solid wr if not a star. It sounds like his attitude & personal issues are the problem. If he gets suspended it might be the best thing for his career, might make him realize he could be out of a job, cause him to get his game together.

Now I don't think Henry's weed is a big deal but this is just stupid. Matt Jones not only sucks, but is a complete idiot.
