Only then can this question be answered.
i agree but i also think we should give him a shot in TC and PS. Hill/Ginn are not proven WR's although they have shown flashes and I agree they have potential. Nothing wrong with competition, let the best man win. If Jones is 4th or 5th WR after TC then cut him or trade him.
I say we recoup our 5th rounder back and trade him...or a 6th. I hate it for him....getting an injury during pre season was the worst time to, after playing very well in pre season. And then who would have guessed Crabs falling into our lap?

I agree. We are paying the guy STARTING WR money.. Its already done that Crabtree and Morgan are our starters, so what use do we have for him now?? unless he wants to re-do his contract for number 4 money, I dont see the need of keeping him when we have Hill that can play the slot and now Ginn who has more upside than him too! Rather have cut Jones, and kept Battle as a #4/5 and ST player
Nners will have to pay him anyway, so may as well keep him
Didnt Scotty make that move without consulting Sing and Sully?
or they were against it, and Scotty made the move anyway?
I remember reading somthing about that before it was quickly swept under the rug

But he's a decent WR and has good speed. We could use him better. Atleast he doesn't duck the freaking ball.
Depth is always a good thing and he has looked pretty good when healthy. I laugh every time over emotional fans cry for cutting a player that can contribute. Yeah let's get rid of the depth we have built because if we have a couple of guys get hurt, we can always run the ball every down.

Agreed. I wonder how many said the same thing about SOAP or even Alex when they did or could not produce at the level they were paid.
