Bill O'Brien Confirms Paul Jones' Departure from Team

BOB confirmed to the media at practice today that Paul Jones indeed has left the team for personal reasons. Those personal reasons seem to be about Jones' changing role in the offense. The former 5-star quarterback was moved to TE earlier this season, but that package reportedly had been removed by the coaching staff.

It is an unfortunate end to an otherwise disappointing career for Jones in the Blue and White. After coming out of high school with much hype surrounding his size and arm, Jones was never able to breakthrough at the position. The early part of his career was slowed by academic issues, but many had hoped he would earn his chance this year. After Matt McGloin's early success, it didn't seem Jones was going to get his chance.

We wish Mr. Jones good luck on his future endeavors.
