Chicago Bears Overreaction No. 2: Velus Jones Jr. was a waste of a draft pick
Now, for the Velus Jones truthers out there, this isn’t something I believe. It’s just an overreaction, something sports fans love to do. Okay, but back to the regularly scheduled program.
Velus Jones was a waste of a draft pick! See?
All jokes aside, Velus Jones should probably never return a punt again. Kicks haven’t been terribly returned by Jones, but punt returning on the other hand shouldn’t even be in his vocabulary anymore.
That said, when he has the ball in his hands on offense, he’s a completely different guy. Keep him off special teams and keep him on offense.
There’s no reason Dante Pettis should be getting reps over Velus Jones Jr. on offense.
