I'm not lamenting the loss of Jones (good riddance for all I care) ... it's more like I am disappointed in:
1) Not using a #1 or #2 on a better and more reliable WR,
2) The lack of effective use of Martin, Posey and Jean by the Texans' brain trust,
3) The appearance that as raw and erratic as Jones was, Martin, Posey and Jean appear to be even more raw and erratic.
The Texans are (and were at this time last season) in win NOW mode with a window that may not be open very long. I would have like to see a more significant upgrade after we cut Jones.
Sometimes things work out in a weird way.
All the receivers drafted ahead of Posey (except one) were on teams that didn't make the play-offs.
The exception was AJ Jenkins who was drafted in the first round by the Niners.
Some of us, especially myself, scratched our head about this pick.
Jenkins was targeted once (1) the entire season, and he dropped the pass.
