I just doubt they cut him this season at this juncture unless he just puts up a poor showing in the preseason I guess. He's a pretty good player if he's able to play. Who else would we be bringing in that already knows the defense that's on his talent level unless we are talking swinging some type of trade or giving up a draft pick like we did with Sio Moore? With the 4 game suspension I think there's a very strong chance he'll be healthy. If he's injured for a significant amount of time beyond that I'd say that's a wrap on his career with the Colts from that point. We'll see I guess.
I think if Jones had a large cap hit this season, he would definitely be cut. But since he only counts 2.5 against the cap I think he's a safe bet to make the roster. There's no question that a healthy Jones can be a difference maker on defense. I hope at some point we're able to have a healthy Jones, Langford and Anderson all on the field.. that could be a very good defensive line.
And those reasons aren't valid. They wouldn't have restructured if he was going to be cut. I don't think that's a complicated concept to comprehend.
Now the PED violation is a different story. I was speaking on his statement that Jones was going to be cut before the beginning of the season REGARDLESS of anything. Which just isn't plausible.
Welcome jseg18!!! We will pretend that you were not even close to being a Niner fan. No, from Montana and then Young they were fun to watch. I hope we all have fun this year. I do not think the Colts are going to be 3rd in the South.....Have fun.
