    Position: S
    Bio: Two-year starter who totaled 74 tackles/1 interception/2 pass break-ups as a senior after totals of 54/1/3 the prior year.
    Positive: Athletic defensive back who flashed ability but was ultimately inconsistent. Explosive, fast in every direction and easily gets outside the numbers to make plays. Agile, displays a burst to the action, and works well with teammates. Willing run defender who also sells out on the blitz. Occasionally lined up over the slot receiver. Mixes it up with opponents, working to defend the throw.
    Negative: Late reacting to plays. Inefficient, takes too many steps to the action, and overpursues plays. Easily blocked by opponents.
    Analysis: Jones is a talented defensive back with terrific size/speed numbers for the next level. He has a lot of upside and is worth stashing on a practice squad with the hopes for future development, though Jones must quickly elevate his game to have a career in the NFL.

    I thought Baker would be gone but I thought for a LS. Be interesting if ultimately Jones beat out Harmon for the starting SS job down the road. Though very unlikely lol

    I swear BB kept some guys that he liked less than his last round of cuts just to keep the hounds off the scent.  Barker was a real dog.

    As far as this kid goes, his agility drills are horrid, he is not overly strong, but he is fast running straight ahead and he can leap out the gym, you don't see it above but he had a 42" vertical leap at his Pro Day.  I still can't envision him cracking this roster...

    Well since they claimed him he has to be on the 53man roster day 1 so he's already cracked the roster

    +1, Slater is one of the best STers in the league. I suspect Wilson, Ebner, or another Ster is lost before Slater

    Isn't this the guy who got suspended for his comments regarding Sam?

    We're going to have a turnstile of players coming through here until game one so don't get too attached to any of them unless they are proven quality players with resumes because BB is just kicking the tires.

    It can't hurt to try him out but Id be suprised if this guy sticks on the 53 for very long. I wish they took a flier on Duke Ihenacho, but the Skins snagged him quick.

    Sunday:


    Miami: Did Barker tell you our offensive signals and gimmick plays?


    BB: I can neither confirm nor deny that.  You can always change them around.


    Monday:


    Miami: Did Don Jones tell you our defensive signals and gimmicks?


    BB: I can neither confirm nor deny that either.  You can always change them around a second time.

    Don Jones is a quality special teamer whose spot is in danger due to his inability to standout on base defense.
