Jones, a New Orleans native, visited Charlotte last spring on a free agent tour and was set to sign with the Panthers. But after his agent encouraged him to take his final visit to Baltimore, Jones signed with the Ravens and ended up in his hometown for his first Super Bowl.
Jones said he met with Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and former offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski during his visit, and came away impressed.
“It was great,” Jones said Wednesday. “I was like, 'Man, I'm leaning this way.'”
Jones said the Panthers' offer was similar to the two-year, $7 million deal he received from the Ravens
Jones said he would have been the Panthers' No. 3 wideout, but wasn't sure he would get to return both kicks and punts.
“They were kind of decided of Brandon LaFell” as the second wideout, Jones said. “He played pretty well. They had a returner (Kealoha Pilares). And they had a guy (Joe Adams) they drafted. I was looking at that, too.”http://blogs.charlotte.com/pan...-a-panther.html
