Bears WR and Matt Jones

Concerning the WR position!

I think the Bears will do fine with what they have but why not improve.  What about Matt Jones?  The Bears don’t have great height at the position and it is known that the coaches love speed.  Matt Jones is a monster and ran a 4.37 at his combine in 2005 (even though he might not play as quick in pads).  Getting named the beast at the combine shows he has talent.  No problem with his hands and he had 65 receptions last year while missing four games.  He has experience and is a number 1 receiver.  He would give Hester and the other young receiver’s time to develop.  Also he is 26, has to be the best option apart from Boldin.

However I know the Bears probably say they equally value a clean record which is maybe why they haven’t touched him.  But he has been cleared of any game suspensions and only a fine by the NFL.  Will this lead to more interest?  I think improving is more important than getting someone with some bad history.  A 26 year old, 6,6 receiver with experience.  Why not?  What are his knocks etc?

Thank you very much,

Michael Swindells
