Can't say I've ever been happy about signing a punter...1st time for everything.
Eh, well...maybe. Maybe not.
The moment he starts shanking off a 15-yard wobbler to the third row of the bleachers...the money and the risk of Jones having a down year better be enough to fend off a lot of angry fans' reactions.
I don't know if Jones' year was so decent that he's priced himself out of our range or what, but I'm in a wait and see mode on this one.
