Panthers | Jones Looking to Improve Blocking

Darin Gantt, of the Rock Hill Herald, reports Carolina Panthers TE Freddie Jones said his priorities have changed. He joined the Panthers because he wants to be part of a winning team and is willing to sacrifice catching passes while blocking more if that means he has a shot at the Super Bowl or playoffs. While he could be a solid receiving option in the red zone, Jones is going to have to adjust his game to the Panthers' style rather than the team adjusting to his. Jones said he has gained upper body strength over the last year and now he needs to prove to the coaching staff that he can block, too. If he can't, there is no guarantee he'll stick with the team.
