Offiicial: Cut Brandon Jones thread

Offiicial: Cut Brandon Jones thread

They should see if they can trade him at all.

I like the dude.
I remember the hoopla over this signing. The fact is that he is a very expensive backup, seriously. Now with Ginn, our need for his services and abilities have been greatly reduced. Maybe the organization wants to purge some of the "baggage" from McC's tenure, Jones being one of them. Who knows. The fact is that he's expendable and maybe his contract is worth terminating in the long run.

In the least, he will add great depth...still, that some expensive depth.

I never liked the signing to begin with.
Ummm voice of reason here.

We lost Battle and Bruce. And only replaced one of them with Ginn.

I think we have a little wiggle room here.

If we pick someone else up who has a better track record then by all means TRADE the man. But don't cut him.

If it works out that we can't trade him, fine. But to cut him outright would be a rookie move. You Madden guys need to learn I know, but c'mon.

finally, some one who agrees with me about Ziegler. I will replace Jones with Zeigler. He is underated and deserves dat spot.

It's a long unfinished fragment. lol
Cut him??? No...make him fight for a spot on the team? Absolutely.
At the very least trade him for a pick this year. I mean, we got a pick for Shaun Hill...

He's a good reciever, just not a good PR. He has speed. When he got in the game and Alex got him the ball he had 2 nice catches, one called back on a BS penalty. But he's a decent WR and has good speed. We could use him better. Atleast he doesn't duck the freaking ball.

I can agree about Jones' PR skills, but, IMO, the jury's still out on Jones as a WR: an arguement could be made he's our best downfield threat due to his speed. That said, with the potential we have with Crab, Morgan, and Hill, I can't justify Jones' salary vs. his playing time, especially now we have a burner in Ginn. He may be better suited for another team that needs his ability to stretch the field (or for a certain owner who loves to stockpile speedy, overpaid WRs).

jones may surprise us. i remember everyone talking about him last year in camp making the best catches and looking awesome before he broke his shoulder. he may be a nice surprise. being loaded with you talented receivers is a problem most teams would love. Crabtree, Morgan, Hill, Ginn, Jones, Zeigler has potential too. none of them are probowlers but thats a solid group of young talent. if jones doesnt show anything, then you cut him. cutting someone when you dont have to is not a smart move.

I like zeigler also, and it sucks that this time next year he will prob be on another team.
