No. 2 player tumbling down in Jaguars training camp: Tim Jones
The top four spots on the receiver depth chart are already earmarked. Christian Kirk, Zay Jones, and Calvin Ridley (in no particular order) are set to start for the Jaguars in 2023. Also, Jamal Agnew has a spot guaranteed, even though his main contributions will come on special teams as a returner. That could leave Parker Washington, Kendric Pryor, and Tim Jones competing for the last spot.
Parker Washington has had a productive training camp so far, and wide receivers coach Chad Hall believes he could have an impact down the road due to his ability to make plays after the catch. Similarly, Kendric Pryor, an undrafted free agent in 2022 has shown growth in Year 2.
Meanwhile, Jones has had a relatively quiet offseason. The Southern Mississippi Eagle spent his rookie season in the Jaguars' practice squad but he made the 53-man roster after an outstanding performance in last year's preseason.
However, Jones was a non-factor once the regular season started, catching a measly three passes for 30 yards. You could argue that Jacksonville had a crowded receiver room but if the coaching staff believed Jones could have helped them, they would've found a way to get him involved.
The silver lining is that there's still time for Jones to make ground but he might need to outplay Pryor and Washington to make the final roster for the second straight year. In fact, don't be surprised if he ends up landing on special teams or a team in need of help at the position claims him off waivers after roster cutdown.
