What's interesting about Donald Jones is that he was running with #Patriots main group of WRs during the offseason. Now, available to all.

The talent is there but with his iffy hands, I'm not sure if this is a good signing...

He's like Welker in the sense that he caused headaches for the Pats any time he played against 'em. I guess that was what caught Belichick's attention. Don't have much of an opinion on the guy aside from that.

Though Vince Wilfork did absolutely destroy him last year.

Hasn't showed that much ability in the NFL but he does have talent.

My buddies and I nicknamed him Stonehands Jones. Was happy that we let him go.

Until you see him turn it around inside your own division. Then you'll wish otherwise Smile

65 catches for 7-8 TDs LOL I'm sure it'll happen (pending health obviously)

Take the bum.


Now if it was David Nelson I'd be pissed. I have NO clue why we haven't re signed him. Damn shame.

He got 43 receptions in 3/4 of a season with a below average QB throwing him the ball

Pleaseeeee stop trying to make him look good, we follow our team closely enough. He's simply not good at catching the ball. It wasn't our QB it was him. He had 43 catches because Nelson was out all year.

He is nothing more then a number 3 or 4...and the fact that the Bills who only have Stevie didn't want him back should tell you just how "good" he is.

He'll only need to be a 5th option here, so it's fine.

agreed, I would be very happy with 50 rec a year out of him. he will replace branch who only got 16 catches last year.
