Default Re: UDFA, Dwight Jones, WR, North Carolina

You know today was the first I have heard about this. WTF...and this was the guy saying he was going to be the next Andre Johnson?? I hope he didnt just quit. There are tons of guys that would love to even make a practice squad. He prob got his feelings hurt cause you knew he wasnt going to make the team and wasnt as good and he told himself.

I really think Gary Kubiak is sending a message by keeping his name on the roster. Gary is saying "I will never give up on anybody. I will always believe in my guys."

He's making it known that the door is open if the heart is right. I doubt he's trying to keep other teams from claiming Jones. I truly think Gary Kubiak would welcome him back if the guy came back and was serious about getting to work. Might not keep him, might not make anything BUT the practice squad, but I think Kubiak would still give him a shot.

That's what it sounded like to me as well. I don't think he'll be back though.

But I do think he'll make the news again.

I agree. Jones would have the opportunity to learn and develop with little pressure. Maybe he is putting more stress on himself than coaches did. Maybe a little Zoloft would help?

It's going to be an unknown as to why a guy with all the talent in the world can't hack it at Texans camp. I know Kubiak has been criticized around here for being too "soft" (And I remember a lot of people not really high on the Wade Phillips hire because he is also considered "soft". lol at those people), so to see that somebody quit on him seems puzzling.

Would love to see Jones come back and play up to his potential, because we could really use that. He is what he is though, and if it turns out he's a quitter, then so be it.

I think it's more of a "You signed a contract with me and if you won't play for me you won't play for anyone." Type thing.

Not being a grammar nazi here but did you mean to say "won't play for anyone"?

Does anyone really think this clown will be back? And I'm one of the clowns that thought he had a legit shot at making the team.

Yeah, because that type of spitefullness has always been the MO of The Texans organization, from Bob McNair on down.

I think its more of a case that the kid was overwhelmed which can be daunting if your heart isn't into it 100%.

Who knows what kind of contract & rights issues are involved here,

And who cares about a guy who predictably walked away?

Put this thread to bed -- let's talk about somebody we drafted or is with the team.

My favorite poster quote was this gem (upon learning Dwight Jones became a Texans UDFA):

Quote:
Note to Texans: Increase media training budget.
LMAO.

The poster was saying that whatever the Texans front office has budgeted for training the players how to handle themselves in the media, such as when the player is being interviewed or how the player conducts himself on twitter, Facebook, etc., that the Texans better increase that budget in order to help Dwight Jones not make a fool of himself and the Texans with what he says in the media.

Sure enough, Dwight Jones goes on a radio interview and proclaims he's the next Andre Johnson. LOL. He's a gaffe machine, saying and doing things that are not helping him nor the team he's associated with.

GP, do you really think that's a worry point at this time. Or any time in the future? I don't.

And like Dutch said, I'm down to 4 FAs now.

He stirred up the hornet's nest. Blabbing on about how he was big stuff, then craps out after three days. He owns that bit of Dwight Jones history.

BTW, dude is STILL on the roster. LOL. What a world.

Yeah, no ****e. If the dude could have only found a way to be humble and take advantage of a golden opportunity on a team on the rise. He had a chance to back up his *shock statement* but decided to tuck-n-run back to the hood. He'll be busted for selling rock on the corner before it's over.

Sad, really sad.
