It's been quite a fall for WR Matt Jones, the Jacksonville Jaguars first round pick in the 2005 NFL draft. A college quarterback, Jones entered the NFL as a receiver and, while he was disappointing as a first round pick, he had a few productive seasons topping out in 2008 with 65 receptions for 761 yards in 12 games.
Unfortunately, his career was ended because of several substance abuse-related arrests. He was released from the Jaguars in March of 2009 and had a few tryouts over the next couple of seasons but hasn't been in a regular season game since 2008.
He has since retired from the NFL after reportedly declining a workout with the Redskins in November 2010.
So what's he doing now? According to this tweet, he's playing flag football:
Riches to Rags Matt Jones first round draft pick to playing in my men's city flag football league..
Can this be true? He has to be the best receiver on the field, right?
