Bucs RB coach Tim Spencer put rookie Ronald Jones' pass-catching skills on blast. "In college, there was probably a reason why he was only thrown the ball 17 times," Spencer said. Jones caught just 14 balls in his final season at USC and 32 total in 3 years at school. Spencer went on to say that Jones has worked on "his hands, his eyes" but that "he's never going to be the best catching guy on the team." It's pretty rare to hear a coach talk so negatively about a player's ability -- but it seems warranted here. Jones has reportedly struggled catching the ball in training camp and has dropped both his targets in preseason action. Jones won't be a factor in the passing game this season and remains behind RB Peyton Barber for early-down work.
Bucs GM Jason Licht singled out RB Ronald Jones as the player who's most impressed the coaching staff this offseason. "His attitude, his willingness to do extra," Licht continued. "You can just see the confidence rising in him." Jones is coming off a brutal rookie campaign that saw him fail to pass Peyton Barber on the depth chart and average just 1.9 yards on 23 carries. Licht might be simply covering his butt after spending a 2nd-round pick on Jones last year. But it's also too soon to write off a guy who turns just 22 in August. Jones still has every chance to win Tampa's starting job in 2019.
