He's untouchable right now. Coke possession, probation violations, suspensions. Hell he's gonna be in jail probably.

I'd take him if they paid us Haynesworth type money.

Re: Jaguars Release Matt Jones

The Jags' receiving situation is a mess. Who do they even have? Troy Williamson and Dennis Northcut?

All the more reason they're likely to take a WR with their first round pick

It seems almost guaranteed. How did that team fall so far so fast? They seemed smart and prepared just 2 or 3 seasons ago. Now they seem like Vikings South.

Re: Jaguars Release Matt Jones

Remember all those articles about him how he would be the best thing ever and with his size, speed, and ability that he would surely become the best WR ever.

How can they not go WR at this point?

Re: Jaguars Release Matt Jones

This guy was on the verge of becoming a good, if not better, reciever. I'm a litle surprised they're giving up on him, but maybe there's more to it.

He could be a steal for somebody at this point, that is if he'll be able to play this year.

You'd think, but they need O-line help pretty badly too, and Garrard did not have a good season at all. Jones-Drew is the lone bright spot on that offense. That said, I'd bet they'll take Maclin if he's there.

I actually think Matt Jones can be a very good NFL WR. He played QB in college so the NFL was a huge adjustment for him. Moving from college to pros is a long learning process for WRs (cough Kelly, Thomas, cough), let alone a QB who has never played receiver before. He looked like he was coming into his own last season. He just needs to stop drinking and blowing coke.

You think his drinkin' & druggin' had something to do with it?

Well they did just sign Tra Thomas.
