WR Matt Jones found his second chance with a team known for giving them.
The former Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver signed a one-year deal Friday to join the Bengals, according to multiple published reports. The Cincinnati Enquirer reported Friday the deal is worth worth around $700,000. The Bengals' official Web site reported the deal is likely to be close to minimum salary with incentives.
“He’s had troubles like Chris (Henry), but I give Mike Brown credit," Chad Ochocinco told Bengals.com of the team president. “He’s not afraid to give people second chances. I just want to say, ‘Thank you.’ Matt can play. I think it’s great. He’s fast as hell and he (doesn't drop anything). He gives us height and that is something we’ve been missing a little without Chris. He gives us a presence and another weapon for Carson (Palmer) to use.”
