Carolina Panthers Work Out WR Jacoby Jones

Thanks to the Houston Texans' beat writer John McClain (yes, the TEXANS beat writer)- the Carolina Panthers brought in WR Jacoby Jones today for a visit.

After drafting Joe Adams it looks like the Panthers are still interested in upgrading the talent at the position, as Jones would likely compete with David Gettis and the aforementioned Adams for the #3 receiver spot in training camp. His knack as a deep pass catcher would fit perfectly with the Panthers' offense, and the more weapons for Cam the better. Furthermore, Jones was the Texans' punt returner last year- adding more help on special teams.

Given the Panthers propensity to bring in a player, then almost immediately make a contract offer it would seem there is significant interest, and McClain believes the feeling should be mutual.

I couldn't agree more.

After the jump a look at Jones' career stats at WR and PR.
