Personally, I'm ecstatic. Whether D. Jones decides to stop tucking it or not, I'm proud to be a Texans fan.

I don't think you are reading my comments fully. I haven't said he owes anyone an explanation - I would have expected the reporters to at least ask the question on his plans. I have never implied he shouldn't walk away from football, only qualified it with he should do so once he has a path to a higher passion. Look if the dude somehow has the means and desire to open a flower shop, join the forestry service or is inspired by the shot of getting on a crab boat and wants to quit football then more power to him. All I am saying is I think it is unwise (potentially either lazy and/or immature) to walk away from an opportunity like this IF you haven't already figured out for what you want to make the sacrifice.

Undrafted Dwight Jones: Poster boy for UNC Underachievement
Wow.

Pretty much clears things up for me. Good find.

Time to close this thread and move on to Texans football players.

Wow ... I cackled when I read this gem...

Quote:
If there is such a condition as being "functionally retarded", I think it's safe to say that Dwight Jones serves as the poster child.

My God. The guy is just pathetic and the fact that he actually managed to make it through UNC-CH serves to degrade the academic reputation of that institution, no matter how you slice it.

Let's (briefly and from a high level perspective) revisit the "proud" tradition of UNC-CH "student athletics, shall we?

- In the 80s, they had ilLiTerate in football and the "Galloping Mensans", Kevin Madden and JR "Cain't" Reid in bball.
- In the 90s, they had Remedial Mikey Thomas (and plenty of others).
- In the 2000s, they had Jaworski **** ing Pollack (and plenty of others, again).
- In the late 2000s, this sad, pathetic, mindless mental midget clumsily staggered into Chapel Hill where, 4 short years later, he would clumsily stagger off of campus clutching a useless "degree" with his crayon-stained fingers.

Those are but a few of the braindead, mouthbreathing alumni about whom the fine institution 29 miles to the west can proudly boast. Lookin' good, Hole Fan. Lookin' REAL good!
LOL!

Why is this thread still going?

He was a UDFA. He didn't work. Move along now, nothing to see here.

He's a train wreck.

Exactly my point. It wasn't like he's a 1st round pick who quit. The guy was a long shot at best to make the team. I don't get the outrage over it.

It's the lightning rod effect.

There's a Texans UDFA linebacker who has a lightning rod issue too, so his thread is lengthy as well.

It's part of life. Especially in a sensationalized news culture.

Plus, the guy said he was the next Andre Johnson. Eeek.

His life seems to be much more of a train wreck than my own, which makes me love to follow him to make my life seem so much better.

A couple ideas

1) He was probably the most talked UDFA in our signings...a guy may of the draftniks would have rather seen taken in the 3rd round than the guy we took. If one of the lesser knowns had done the same, i might not have even started a separate thread.

2) The other thing is that there is a lot of "feel good about myself." Many of posters know that if given the chance that they would never just quit. Might get cut in two days, but would not just walk away from an opportunity that few people get.

I wonder if he had a spat with one of the coaches and walked out hoping we'd cut him so he could sign on somewhere else.

Although, seriously, who else would want him?

Dunno? Heck, I think our players would haze him silly if he was to come back. I don't expect him back, nor do I want him back

Not that anything can be made of it one way or the other, but he remains on the official roster listing.

So it’s no surprise that Jones didn’t report to training camp today. But the Texans, who put Jones on the reserve/did not report list, are still holding out hope that Jones will show up eventually, according to Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio.

I don't think we're "holding out hope". Like PN said, we're likely taking precautions and blocking him from choosing another team.

Dude quit before even getting started. Maybe he just chose a different path? Who knows? I'd pass either way
