Dwight Jones Called "A Turd Who Doesn't Have The Work Ethic To Make It In The League"

Oddly, there are not a lot of pictures of "the next Andre Johnson."

In his latest post, Lance Zierlein takes a look at the Texans' wide receivers and the battle for snaps behind Andre Johnson. In discussing Dwight Jones, LZ had some very interesting things to say. Hit the jump for more.

Dwight Jones (UFA – North Carolina) - Jones would have been a 4th round draft pick if he hadn’t been hit so hard by character concerns that, quite frankly, were well-earned. One person with personal knowledge of Jones called him “entitled”, “lazy” and “a turd who doesn’t have the work ethic to make it in the league”. I have no doubt that those things are true. Jones is 6’3/230, runs in the 4.5s and was productive in college. You don’t go undrafted with those credentials unless you deserved it. With all of that said, I know what I saw when I studied him pre-draft. He’s a big-bodied WR who isn’t afraid to go over the middle and who has the ability to make plays down the field. Jones has a problem with drops which may do him in, but he’s a much better prospect heading into camp than Terrence Toliver was last year.

Strong words, especially since many of us (myself included) absolutely loved the pickup of D. Jones as an undrafted free agent. LZ's report is a good reminder that we should temper our expectations.
