JONES LIKELY TO STICK...FOR NOW: While many fans continue to wonder what's going to happen with disappointing former first-round pick Matt Jones, he likely won't be released for salary cap purposes.
The receiver is only due $625,000 in base salary for 2008 and $565,000 in 2009. So whether he makes the team or not likely will be decided during training camp based on performance, not salary.
JagNation's Charlie Berstein had this to say about Jones-
Jones has been the center of much criticism because he has excellent size (6'6", 240 lbs.), speed (4.37 40-yard dash) and athleticism (40 inch vertical), but he has yet to put it all together consistently. Jones is a terrific red zone target because of the aforementioned measurables, but he rarely overexerts himself. A converted quarterback, Jones might still be developing as a receiver, but coaches and teammates have been disgruntled by lack of effort by Jones in the past and he must show more dedication to stay on the roster.
