A nagging hamstring injury kept him from having a big impact during his rookie season, but Jones is looking good so far during the offseason. He’s also looking different; he’s cut his hair.
“There is a little less weight on the top of his head with his dreads gone, but he’s had a very good camp for us as you saw today,” coach Mike Smith said Wednesday, via D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “He made some very nice catches and he’s been making those types of catches all through camp.”
Jones donated his dreads to a charity that makes wigs for children with cancer. “We do a lot of community service here, and from going to a lot of hospitals and seeing all the kids who are fans of mine, I just cut my hair and donated it for leukemia patients,” Jones said.
