Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones is a full-go during the first day of conditioning and voluntary workouts, according to the fourth-year wide receiver.

Jones has essentially been green-lit to do whatever he wants since February, even posting videos to social media of his workouts in California.
"I've got the green light to do anything and everything I need to do to get back to where I need to be," Jones texted via Bengals.com in February. "I've been surprised at the progress I've made in only going on my second week training and at the rate I’m going I'm sure I will be in game shape very soon. My focus is on getting back that muscle memory, lower body explosion, and just getting out there on the field and go all out with no (hiccups) consistently every day."
Jones, who missed the entire 2014 season with foot injruies, had a career year in 2013 in receptions (51), yards receiving (712) and touchdowns (10). His return will give Cincinnati a starting wide receiver that they didn't have last year -- which was significantly problematic, especially with A.J. Green's injuries.
