Former Tennessee wide receiver Gerald Jones signed with the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday.
The undrafted rookie free agent had a career-high 55 receptions last season for 596 yards and four touchdowns. Overall, the 5-foot-10, 195-pound Jones caught 142 passes for 1,710 yards and 13 touchdowns during his UT career. He also rushed for 204 yards and three TDs.
While Jones was joining the Eagles, wide receiver DeSean Jackson was not at the team's first workout of training camp at Lehigh University.
Jackson, a two-time Pro Bowler, has expressed discontent with his contract on his Twitter feed. He will earn $565,000 in base salary this season, the last of his four-year rookie deal.
