Jones aiming to catch everything for Bills
In the case of Buffalo Bills wide receiver Donald Jones, his first year of starting in the NFL was plagued by drops. He did collect 23 receptions over the course of eight games, but he missed a few opportunities to really stand out early on in the season.
Taking it all to heart, Jones has been trying to fix the football problem that ails him.
Speaking with reporters after Monday night's practice, the wide receiver was inevitably asked about the competition shaping up for the second wide receiver job -- and more importantly, about how he felt he has performed this far in to training camp.
"I feel like I'm doing good," Jones said. "I've definitely caught basically all the passes that have been thrown to me except for the early one today. I'm really pissed about it, but I feel like I'm doing good."
Only the one dropped pass through ten practices, Donald?
"By my count, two drops all camp," he said. "Yeah, it's a good percentage. But I shouldn't have any."
For a player who's biggest problem has been consistency to this point, those sentiments have to be music to the ears for Chan Gailey and the rest of the offensive coaching staff.
Jones is up against Derek Hagan, T.J. Graham and Marcus Easley for the number-two receiver role. Heading in to training camp, Gailey said Jones was ahead of every one else for that job.
