What happened with these guys? Grading Gene Smith (Part I)
By Zoltan Paksa
Now he is an interesting case. He was by far the best Jaguars WR in 2008 which is I know was not a big deal; but hey; he had value because of that. But a failed drug test after a party with his friends on a golf course resulted in a release by Gene. And dispite rumors about joining the Titans or other team; Matt Jones gig not see NFL action in 2009. He recently signed with the Cincinnati Bengals; and if he is still in shape; I think he might make the final roster. I give him the same grade I gave for Reggie Williams; but that can chance this year. I’m really intereted about how Matt will perform with his new team. Has he changed? Did he start to have a professional kind of mentality; or is he the same old “I care more about basketball and hanging out with my posse more then footbal” guy.
Grade for letting him go: A (* the grade can change this year!)
