Datone Jones says goodbye to Jaguars

The Jaguars took a few chances on some veterans this offseason, but don’t appear to be extending them to the regular season.

Defensive end Datone Jones just tweeted out his own goodbye to the Jaguars, acknowledging that he has been released.

The former Packers first-rounder blocked a field goal Thursday night, and made enough plays along the way that he’s likely to get a chance somewhere else. But the Jaguars are deep enough up front that they could part ways with him (and not guarantee his salary by keeping him on the Week One roster).

The Jaguars have also parted ways with wide receiver Terrelle Pryor and cornerback Saivion Smith, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

The 30-year-old Pryor might have reached the end of the line, having blown through the Jets, Bills, and Jaguars in the last year without latching on.

  1. Datone Jones was ruined by the Packers. It will be hard for other teams to make him into a decent player now. Good luck to him anyways. And sorry. It’s not his fault.

  2. The Bills had one of the worst WR groups of any team in the league last year. Any WR that couldn’t stick with them doesn’t deserve to be in the NFL any longer. That includes Pryor and Benjamin.

  3. Datone J another flop pick by Ted the genius. Ted drafted one guy by a fluke and they want to raise a statue to him. They should consider all the bums he drafted and worse the guys who were on the board that he could have drafted.
    The pack dbacks were terrible for four straight years as Ted sat back at the end of round one and just took whoever was left. ya that worked

  4. Pryor really messed up not taking that multi-year Browns deal a few seasons ago. He never even got CLOSE to another offer like that – he’d have probably $20 million more in the bank right now had he signed that deal (I’m guessing, but it’s up there.) Sometimes these agents really overvalue the guys they represent.

  5. Pryor should probably have never left the Browns. I’m surprised at how fast he has fallen off. Some team in need of WRs might take a look at him though. I wonder if it’s his attitude or age or something else. Whatever it is, his career has taken a nosedive.
