Jones impressed during the team's OTA's, the Kansas City Star reports. "Eighty-one has done a nice job," said coach Andy Reid. "I know him by 'Stretch' ... he's done a nice job. He had a chance to work in there on the rotation and do some things. Big kid who can run, has pretty good hands. But again, he hasn't played much. Gotta see how he does in camp."
Jones possesses impressive measurables at 6-foot-3, 200 pounds and reportedly displayed the ability to outrun defensive back and make some tough catches during OTAs. Things could change when the pads are put on, but the fourth-year wideout appears to be in the mix for reps early in the offseason following the team's release of veteran wide receiver Jeremy Maclin. Tyreek Hill and Chris Conley appear locked in atop the depth chart at the position, but the remaining names will battle it out during training camp for reps on Sundays.
Jones inked a contract to join the Chiefs' practice squad Sunday, the Kansas City Star reports.
Jones reportedly displayed some promise during camp, enough so that the Chiefs have decided to keep him in Kansas City despite the wideout not securing a 53-man roster spot. He could earn a promotion if injuries occur but it's unlikely the second-year wideout will have a significant role on Sundays.
