Houston Texans rookie receiver Dwight Jones quit pro football on Tuesday.
Houston Texans wide receiver Dwight Jones is done with professional football, only weeks after beginning his career in the NFL. On Tuesday morning it was reported by Mark Berman of Fox 26 in Houston that Jones informed the Texans that he was quitting football.
The Texas signed Jones as an undrafted free agent following the 2012 NFL Draft. Jones, a North Carolina product, was once regarded as a player likely to be drafted on the second day of the draft. His draft stock fell precipitously following questions about his on-field efforts at UNC and poor showings at the Senior Bowl and the Combine this spring.
Jones did not report on Tuesday morning for the team's OTAs. That set off a round of speculation leading up to the news.
