So after the Titans punted return specialist Mark Jones, conventional wisdom was that Jones would return to the team from whence he came.
And that would have happened, if Jones had been healthy.
According to the Associated Press, Jones visited Carolina on Monday but failed a physical, presumably due to a hamstring that bothered him throughout the preseason.
Jones signed with Tennessee in the offseason as a free agent after spending last season with the Panthers.
The development could prompt Jones to file an injury grievance against the Titans; if successful, they’d owe his base salary until the point that he is able to pass a physical.
