Chiefs 2017 preseason is going to be big for WR Seantavius Jones

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs seem to like what they’ve seen out of WR Seantavius Jones during the offseason so far. I remember watching him last year and being impressed with him. In fact, I went back and looked at our coverage from last year’s roster cut downs and I wrote that I was surprised Jones was cut so early because he had a good camp.

A year later, Jones, listed at 6’3 and 200 pounds, is putting in another good camp and the Chiefs are noticing.

“I like what I’ve seen,” Reid said this week via quotes from the Chiefs. “He’s a big guy that can run and he attacks the ball, which I appreciate. For the most part there’s trust. I think that’s a positive there.”

The tall receiver who you think is going to be Calvin Johnson is an annual training camp story line but the Chiefs receiver group could have an opening. I see Chris Conley, Tyreek Hill, Demarcus Robinson and Jehu Chesson as locks to make the roster. That’s four, which leaves likely two more spots (Albert Wilson? De’Anthony Thomas?)

“I would hold off on evaluations until somebody gets smacked around a little bit,” Reid continued. “Now is a different deal. You maintain that same focus. He has done that before for us so I have seen it, but he has to do it now. It is all about right now.”

Sounds like the preseason - with real competition and pads - is going to be big for Jones.
