Patriots | Will cut Donald Jones

Fri, 19 Jul 2013 12:54:50 -0700

The New England Patriots will waive WR Donald Jones.

Fantasy Tip: The release of Jones should mean that Aaron Dobson and Josh Boyce will get more reps during practice and preseason games. The competition for the Patriots' No. 2 wide receiver job is wide open, so both rookies should have the chance to earn it. Julian Edelman could also be a candidate for the starting position. Owners should monitor the situation to see which of the receivers gets the job.

Bills | Stevie Johnson critical of play call

Wed, 14 Nov 2012 04:25:07 -0800

Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson second-guessed why a more experienced wide receiver wasn't targeted on a Week 10 play that ended with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing an interception into the end zone to seal a 37-31 loss. Johnson also came to WR T.J. Graham's defense, saying the rookie receiver shouldn't be faulted for running the wrong route because he had never attempted it in practice. "I don't think it was the wrong play. But just the whole thing leading up to it," Johnson said, noting that he, WR Donald Jones and TE Scott Chandler were more familiar at running the route. "We had people in positions where maybe they shouldn't have been. So who knows what would've happened if it was Donald, me or Scott there. So it's no blame on T.J. at all, because he's never run that route in practice or in a game."
