NGT: Matt Jones Signs with the Eagles

BigBlueDownTheShore : 5/9/2018 1:16 pm
Won a 3 man tryout yesterday.

What happened to this guys career. He played so well in 2016 and then fell off of a cliff (4.6 yrd. avg.).

He had a total of 5 carries last season and was on and off the practice squad for the Colts.

Didn't he also have some cocaine problems? Like got caught with a bunch of it, or am I confusing him with someone else?

Oh know Matt Jones the WR that converted from QB at Arkansas. Work out warrior, that got over drafted, and then got caught with a bunch of cocaine.
The other Matt Jones

was sort of a BBI favorite if remember correctly. A few posters thought he would be a good NFL QB.

I admit that I was a big fan of Matt Jones. I thought that he was going to be a stud WR.

Ah. Right. Different dude, same name. Sadly the one in the NFL now is still less famous. As soon as I saw the title of this thread, I thought about the cocaine thing.

BBI loved him in the 2005 draft. He never panned out though, cocaine addiction aside.

Yeah, and HUGE surprise the guy who didn't play any WR in college didn't pan out as an NFL WR. SHOCKER!! Lol crazy he was a first round pick.
It looks like Donnel Pumphrey may be the odd man out in Philly

in that case, I suggest we give him a shot.
