I'm pretty sure, Dutch, that it was promoting this past New Year's Eve.

Saturday, December 31 of 2011.

The next day, Sunday, was January 1, 2012.

The University was pissed off because he attached his likeness and his name to the party's advertising poster that was distributed/displayed in the weeks leading up to Saturday, December 31 2011.

UNC threatened to suspend him which meant he was not going to play in the bowl game (which was held prior to New Year's Eve). So then Dwight complies with UNC, gets to play in the bowl game, and then does a big Eff You! by re-attaching his name to the party and attending it, blah blah blah.

Therefore, UNC officials decided to prohibit him from participating in the official UNC Pro Day held on their college campus. This is why he had to go across town and have his own Pro Day whereby only one scout (Broncos) attended.

Based on Jones' comments, he said he was "done with UNC" after the bowl game ended...meaning that he could care less about what UNC might do to him after the conclusion of the bowl game. He wanted to play ball, then party like a rock star and give a rat's ass about the natural outcome of that decision. So UNC broke ties and said he couldn't be a part of their Pro Day.

And we signed him. LOL.

That's all I got.

Jones' side of the story, from what I've heard him say in interviews, is that he did not give permission for his likeness to be used and that he did not attend the party.

He doesn't come across as very believable, though. I expect GPs statement of the facts to be more reliable than Dwight Jones'.

Unless the dude realizes that attitude took him from a top 3 round draft pick to UDFA.

If the guy wants to play he can. If he wants party he will be unemployed. These are the type of players we should be signing as UDFA's. High reward, 0 risk.

Then why did he RE-post the whole thing on his personal Facebook page right after he was allowed to play in the Bowl game?

Quote:
Working with the NCAA, UNC reinstated Jones for the bowl game – a 41-24 loss to Missouri – on the agreement Jones would cancel the party. Jones played in the game, catching six passes for 77 yards and a touchdown.

But after the game, the flier was re-posted on Jones’ Facebook page and the party was held as planned. Jones said Tuesday he did not attend the party, but was out with friends celebrating his birthday.

Jones seems like the kind of guy that talks in circles and eventually talks himself into a corner.

I've heard him say two different things. The first thing I heard him say was that he didn't give permission and then the second thing I heard him say about it was that since the season was over he thought he was no longer being held to NCAA standards.

I don't know. This may have some affect on what type of person/player he becomes, but I really don't care about it. Show up and play ball. There have been a bunch of jive talkers and idiots that have been able to do that.

This. He is not the brightest bulb but he can catch the ball and do something with it. We are not talking about drugs, assault, having children with 6 different women or arguing with coaches. If he repeats selling personal items in the pros no one will say anything. Let's give the kid a mentor, reasonable expectations as to conduct of a TEXAN and say go catch the ball.

We know he can do that as we also know Keenum can pass.

What Dwight Jones did was dumb. But, what does being dumb have to do with being able to catch passes in the NFL? You can be dumb as a box of rocks, as still make an amazing living in sports. Jones will make or not make the team based upon his ability to play and commit to the sport.

With Jacoby gone, there's a locker available at Reliant for a knucklehead WR. I like Dwight's chances.

eh, he's got the talent but his self destructive behavior will eventually show up & get him off the team if he can't humble himself.

Steve Smith and Arian Foster were both guys that had attitude problems when they 1st came into the league. Perfectly fine with the risk they're taking here with this kid as he could turn into a good one.

Just in case people are wondering about the logistics of what I posted, here it is in truncated form:

I built the story from an article that I think CnD had posted, where UNC officials were quoted as having threatened Jones with the proposition of suspending him from the bowl game...so he wisely complied...then after the bowl game he got his swerve on again by hitting warp speed with promotion of the party.

It was a pretty smart move, for a brief moment (since he got to play in the bowl game), but then UNC decided their response to his shenanigans was to ban him from their official UNC Pro Day.

I should go back and quote all the source material but meh. You guys can dig for it if you wanna.

So he should of said "Well I plan on being the PS WR, not doing much of anything, and collecting as much cash as I can before they cut me or I make a boneheaded play"?

Again, I prefer a WR that is saying what he's saying IF he can deliver. If he can do what he THINKS he can do, he'll be that emotional spark plug every team needs. If...

I don't see what the big deal was in the interview.

He was laughing when the said the next Andre Johnson bit.

And he spends a great deal of the interview talking about how much he admires Johnson and wants to learn from him.

If you just were listening to the interview without the DWIGHT JONES SAYS HE'S NEXT ANDRE JOHNSON vibe, it really isn't much of anything but a potstir.

If he works hard in camp, he has a shot to make the team or the practice squad.

If he doesn't fit, he's just an UDFA and the Texans took a swing that missed. So what?

Foster almost wasn't a Texan. Braman had issues that he had to overcome to make the actual roster. Sometimes you hit, sometimes you miss.

Given his physical attributes and his relationship with TJ Yates, I don't mind seeing if they can turn him into a Texan.

Dont know much about this guy but I remember reading mocks last year saying that we would be lucky to get him in the 2nd round. A lot of people were saying he would be great. Now that we got him as a UDFA that must be a amazing value no? If he was as good as people said he was last year he should have no trouble making the team

A brief Dwight Jones interview after his last UNC game. It really doesn't sound like the same Dwight Jones from the interview with the Houston media.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48D6xeUG_JI

After watching several interviews with Jones online, it makes me think that his statement to the Houston media was more a.) him not being drafted and hyping himself up...to himself! and b.) coming in with a chip on his shoulder because he went undrafted.
