Report: Dwight Jones Quits Texans

Per Evan Silva of and, 2012 Texans Undrafted Free Agent wide receiver Dwight Jones of University of North Carolina has quit the team. Jones was once a promising prospect whom many draft analysts had rated as high as a 3rd or 4th round pick in the draft.  As the 2011 season continued, his stock fell considerably as many questioned his work ethic and commitment. Of course Texans fans will recall Jones famously called himself “the next Andre Johnson” in a local radio interview.

The Texans have yet to confirm this and reports from today’s post-OTA presser with HC Gary Kubiak state that Jones has been struggling in OTAs and he did not appear on the practice field today. Kubiak was said to be set to speak with Jones this afternoon. Reports also indicate Jones has said simply that he does not want to play football anymore.  According to Mark Berman, sports director at Fox 26 KRIV in Houston, it has been confirmed that Jones has indeed quit the team.
