    Matt Jones

    Should the PATS bring in Matt Jones for a look see?I know he has some baggage but he's 6'5'',fast and alot younger than Joey Galloway.As a ex-qb he should be able to pick the offense and read defense's alot better than what we have now. Any thoughts?

    Physically, this is a good idea. First, his "baggage" would have to be checked at the gate.

    I'd like the move assuming he's recovered from the Columbian Flu........

    i heard he doesn't run good routes because he confuses the white lines of the playing field with the white lines of a different sort.

    I'd like to see Matt Jones given a shot by Belichick, then again I am from Arkansas so I tend to back most former Razorbacks.

    I think he could be a reliable red-zone assett if he could stay clean, he isn't the 1st-round pick they thought he'd be when he was drafted but he is solid and could make some plays when called upon.  It'd be another big bodied athletic WR on the roster, he could be the 4th or 5th WR for all I care.  I just think he'd be good at providing depth and reliability on the field.  He just needs to prove he's reliable off the field as well tho.

    Re: Matt Jones

    i would like to see him given a shot, just based on the fact that we need his skill set. but i have a feeling that if BB had an interest he would have already been here. the fact that not a single team has even brought him in for a look may signify that there is something else that the public may not be aware of. maybe he could be facing a long suspension? or maybe his substance abuse problems have gotten worse? who knows, but its a shame because the guy has talent. and if he had been coming out this year he may have been drafted even higher because of his wildcat potential.

    We need smart, technical receivers that can read the D instantly along with Brady and run the appropriate route.  That's why Galloway is struggling.  He's not a good route runner and doesn't seem to see the same things Brady does pre-snap.

    Without even going into his off-field problems, Matt Jones is nothing but a big guy who is fast.  He is not a refined receiver.  Why do you think he would be able to succeed in the Pats O??

    Tate won't be able to come in right away and be our #3 WR.  Matt Jones made a mistake, he deserves a second chance.  He is extremely talented, I say we give him a shot.  The Pats have turned around bad character guys in the past.  (Moss, Dillon, Merriweather, etc)

    1st, he's a head case.  2nd, drugs and 3rd which is football related, he's slow of the line.  He can be held up which makes him slow getting into his route.

    Re: Matt Jones

    The reason why Matt Jones has been a no show at any workouts is because drugs are the one thing NFL coaches hate as much as a player calling it quits by mid-season. 


    I hear Tate has been study the tape and learning the playbook he could easily take Galloway's job. Brandon showed upside in his senior year at NC. He is suppose to be a younger Galloway. Relys on his speed mostly. The thing that sets him apart from Galloway are his hands. He has good hands, runs an ok route, and can return kicks. I won't be surprised if Belichick holds him out till the bye though. Might as well give him time to work with Brady and get a good feel for the offense.

    Based on last published reports, Matt Jones has a problem with drug and alcohol addiction. I don't see any Owner, GM or Coach willing to take a chance on him until he overcomes those addictions. 
    Can you imagine a team signing him and he regresses to past habits? How do you think Roger Goodell would react to any slip ups he may have?! 
    Jones has the size and maybe even the speed to be good receiver in the NFL. He might just need to be in an organization that's strong from top to bottom and generally speaking they shy away from head cases.

         Don't know if Jones is a good idea...lots of baggage. But, you are absolutely right about the Pats needing to find a competent #3 receiver. Presently, its' a glaring weakness.
