Report: Matt Jones to sign with the Cincinnati Bengals

ESPN's Chris Mortensen tweets that Matt Jones has chosen to sign with the Cincinnati Bengals rather than the Tennessee Titans. Joe Reedy wrote on Thursday night that the Bengals officially offered Jones a deal "slightly above the league minimum of $630,000" and that the choice for Jones was down to the Bengals and the Titans. In that same post, we documented Jones' issues off the field.

Jones' best season came in 2008, catching 65 passes for 761 yards receiving. He has 15 career touchdowns in four seasons.

Considering his speed and size, Jones could compete with Laveranues Coles and Andre Caldwell as the team's second wide receiver if he performs around or at expectations. Both Coles and Caldwell were considered disappointments, especially in the second half of the season.
