  • Jaguars’ Jones arrested on felony drug charge

    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP)—Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Matt Jones faces a felony drug charge in his former college town after police say he was inside a car cutting up cocaine with a credit card.

    The 25-year-old Jones and two others were arrested early Thursday. A police report said officers approached the car and an officer drew his handgun after Jones did not immediately show his hands.

    Police said they searched the vehicle and found a plastic bag filled with a white substance that tested positive for cocaine and a jar with possible marijuana residue.

    Jared Hicks and Benjamin Cook were also arrested on misdemeanor drug charges.

    Jones was being held on $2,500 bond at the Washington County jail on a charge of felony possession of a controlled substance. His arraignment was set for Aug. 11, two days after Jacksonville’s preseason opener against Atlanta.

    Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver said he was waiting to learn details of the case.

    “We’re trying to investigate that now,” Weaver said. “We don’t have all the facts. We will comment on that once we have all the facts.”

    Jones, a star quarterback at Arkansas and a first-round pick in 2005, failed to develop into the go-to receiver Jacksonville thought he could be.

    Last season, coach Jack Del Rio became increasingly frustrated with Jones’ demeanor and work ethic, making him inactive for three games. In the offseason, the Jaguars signed free agent Jerry Porter and traded for former first-round pick Troy Williamson.

    Looks like Godell is going to have his hand full!

      He came to the NFL with a promising career, but he seems to be one more bust due to his attitude.

        I wonder how many games he'll get suspended for possessing the Bolivian Marching Powder.

        The Jags will probably cut his ass.

          I hope not because then there will be 50 threads on how he'd be beneficial to the team.
