Admit it – as soon as you heard the news you thought it too. You know Jerry Jones too well. You know he loves his fellow Arkansians. You know he likes to make a splash in the off-season. You know his team needs a wide receiver like Jessica Simpson needs Weight Watchers. You know Jerry loves reclaimation projects. It seems so right…and that’s why it’s so wrong. We must appeal to Jerry to do the right thing.
Please, Jerry… Please don’t do it. Don’t sign disgraced wide receiver Matt Jones. Buck your trend. Buck your history. Smart teams stay away from recent residents of jail. Smart teams build their clubs on “character” guys – guys that may not be the best athletes but know how to compete and win both on the field and in the locker room. Smart teams also end up winning playoff games. Matt Jones’ history of arrests and drug abuse isn’t worth the headache. With the release of TO, Pacman Jones, and Tank Johnson in the offseason, Jerry, you’ve appeared to turn the corner. Let’s not double back.
