Earlier today, Donald Jones got his walking papers for the second time this year. Jones was released by the New England Patriots. The Pats offered the former Buffalo Bills receiver a 3 year contract with no money guaranteed. This provided the Patriots with an easy, no issue way out with Jones.
The Patriots are looking to give the younger wide receivers on the team, the two rookies they drafted, Dobson and Boyce more reps and training time in camp to get up to speed.
Like some teams, the Patriots mainly use the team organized activities before training camp to allow the players that are on the bubble a chance to prove themselves and make the team. There must not have been enough convincing done by the former Buffalo Bills wide receiver to make the team.
What does this mean for Donald Jones? Well at this point he will go onto waivers. He will likely get another chance as a 25 year old WR with experience and decent number, but with training cams just around the corner he may need to hope for an injury to get a chance on another team.
