Art Jones returns | Football Blog
Jones now said he’s fully healthy and ready to show NFL executives what he’s capable of, starting with his Pro Day workout [at the Carrier Dome on April 6].

Jones said his agent has been in contact with multiple teams — including the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots, among others — and hopes to solidify his draft position with a good showing.
