"Fun" facts :
Jones was drafted by the New York Jets from the University of Texas with the second overall pick in the 1980 NFL Draft, which the Jets received by trading two first round draft picks. He played wide receiver for the Jets from 1980-1985. Since Jones was a world class sprinter, he could beat any coverage, but had trouble catching the football. He was viewed more as an athlete than a receiver. The $2.1 million contract he received was the first NFL contract worth over a million dollars.He amassed 138 receptions and 13 touchdowns in 5 years.
He is considered one of the Jets' top ten draft busts due to the draft picks traded for him and the large contract.

Why does that sound eerily like Stephen Hill? ---> "Could beat any coverage but has trouble catching the football"
Hopefully, Hill turns out to be a Good WR(and no Jones-Bust)
Oh and isn't it nice that the JETS are the team that gave the VERY FIRST Over-Payment of a player, let alone Draft-bust?
