Panthers | F. Jones Working on Blocking Skills

Panthers.com reports Carolina Panthers head coach John Fox said TE Freddie Jones is still working to refine his blocking skills. When asked how Jones was doing Fox replied, "He's doing well. It's hard to evaluate without pads, so I think we will have a little more critical evaluation when we get to camp, but tight ends coach Dave Magazu does an outstanding job of teaching the fundamentals of blocking. They drill that a lot. There are a lot of techniques involved. In some cases, blocking might not have been an emphasis for guys in their careers. It is an emphasis here. He's got the physical tools to do it, the size, the arm length and the athleticism. Now it's just a matter of learning the techniques."
