    per Evan Silva (via twitter):

    Heard reliably that UDFA receiver Dwight Jones, from UNC, has quit the #Texans. May explain interest in Sims-Walker.

    Frankly, my lack of opinion jumped to poor opinion of the kid when he started spouting off that he was the next AJ. The difference between drafted and undrafted is often between the ears rather than on the field or in the gym.

    I have a hard time respecting UDFA that quit for any 'reason.'

    Like I think the kid from Wisconsin who 'quit' due to 'concussion concerns' (that he was concerned, not that he had them).

    Headline was something like 'Chosing law school over the NFL.'

    No, not really, how many UDFA make teams?

    Can't coach heart and desire....

    His air bag ran our of wind, Punk ass couldn't scrape the from-under-cheese off of Andre Johnson's jock, much less be the next Andre Johnson....

    unless he is going back to school to be a doctor or something, he will always be labeled a quitter...

    Later :clown:

    I wish I law school and the NFL were my two choices at the crossroad.

    He was from OSU. And I actually applaud the decision. Even if he was not worried about concussions, he surmised that he would not make a team, and decided to further pursue his education. I cant see how anyone can find fault in that.

    I think he's not getting many reps & pouting a bit.

    Kubiak: Dwight Jones is a player who is "struggling" a bit. We'll talk to him this afternoon. /said w/ a smile

    Kubiak: WR Dwight Jones only player missing OTAs today. Didn't show. Not an injury thing. (Voluntary.-but not good for UDFA)

    Nick Scurfield ‏@NickScurfield
    Kubiak said Jones, a UDFA from UNC, is "a young man with a lot of information (being thrown) at him." #Texans

    think I saw a number between 4-5 a team out of training camp.

    Practice squads are mostly UDFA rookies.

    Last number i remember is that about 20% of NFl roster are made up of guys not orginally drafted by any team. the number is a bit skewed because kickers, punters, long snappers and now fullbacks are drafted in extremely low percentages.

    sorry, no linkage just memory of a couple things i read awhile back.
