    Reports have said he doesn't like to work out. Wonder if that has anything to do with this decision? As far as his physical condition goes, I mean.

    he has nothing to prove.

    I heard him on ikes show and JJ has been working with him down at tom shaws place in florida.

    if his medical is clean, he's easily a top 10 pick.

    Rookies that get invited, and accept the invitation to the Combine, and then choose to skip, or not fully participate.... that just seems like a lost opportunity.

    Or it looks like they have something to hide.

    If they have no where to go but down, I understand it.

    gotta disagree here chadman.

    jones has all the tape he needs for NFL teams to see. Nothing he does in gym shorts can really help him, IMO. Its all medical with him, if there are any issues.

    Then don't accept the invite to the Combine.

    he may still be going through the medical, I'm not sure.

    he just isn't working out.

    google tells me he is going through with the medical portion.

    that's all he needs to do.
