Matt Jones' future in Washington is in question after the team drafted Samaje Perine, who joins Robert Kelley in the competition for 1st and 2nd down touches. Jones burst onto the scene with a 123-yard, two touchdown performance in his second NFL game in 2015, but has never been the same. Jones' inability to stay in the lineup last year in spite of pedestrian alternatives speaks volumes. Jones is tentative and plays like a scatback in direct contradiction to his frame (6'2", 231 pounds). Speculation abounds that Jones will be a training camp casualty. If he remains on the roster, his fantasy value remains limited unless injuries befall both Kelley and Perine in the early season. (May 21)

Redskins | Matt Jones seeking release (Wed Jun 14, 11:17 AM) - Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones' agent has asked the team to release Jones. Jones is close with new Redskins senior vice president of player personnel Doug Williams, who told him to put his head down and compete. Jones said he would work hard to earn back his starting spot.

Our View: Jones has skipped voluntary OTAs with the idea that he would be traded or released. We'd be surprised if he's on the team's 53-man roster when the regular season opens up.
