Bills sign OT Jarron Jones

Recommended Posts

I have known Jarron since his AQ days.  Nice kid, great family.  Was an interior DL at ND and moved to OL.  Hope it works out for him.

Yes indeed.  I practically lived in Caz Park but my actual address was 48 Alsace off Abbott Rd.

if he went to aquinas, no he can not.

i'm being over the top because i went to the "rival" school.   it has to do with a strange east side/west side thing that rochester has going on.  some of us know aquinas as the dewey ave dumpster.  

What are your opinions on Penfield?

According to NFL.com, we put "LaAdrian Jones" on IR to sign him.  Maybe Waddle's quad isn't as bad as was feared!

Born and raised in Penfield. My 82-year-old mother still lives in the house I was born in.

Waddle to IR

 

Yeah I know....they brought in Young right away so I figured he would be the guy.  Guess not....he eats his peas one at a time.  He's a weirdo.

Can't have pea's at one time on this team! Grow up and mix them with your mashed potatoes if you don't like them

there's been a ton of construction in that area and what they've brought to that area is impressive.  you don't really need to leave the suburb for anything.

I wonder what the record is for being on the most different teams' practice squads without ever being promoted to the final 53 anywhere?

 

That's an interesting thought.  Because I just sat next to Jarron Jones about 3 weeks ago on a flight from Chicago to Dallas.  I'm guessing - just guessing - that he was getting an invite to the Cowboys camp.

 

And, yes, it was in first class.  The man is huge.

Really?  I thought his last regular job was a gig with the Detroit Lions.

 

Anyway, glad he's back in upstate.  Good for him.  Hope he has a chance to shine.

Well Dick spells it Jauron and he coached the Bills two seasons after Jarron was born. Also guessing no one has named anything after Jauron unless you are referring to a bland malaise of nothingness that was his personality. 

 

"Man that presentation was totally Jauron. At least that doosh Pete goes full Gregg and uses a bullhorn for his power points."

Eastside rules! Unless you are referring to East Rochester or Irondequoit, those were slices of the west side that drifted over to the east. We'll take Spencerport though!

Jones is definitely not a threat to start, but he has the advantage over Sam Young of being young, which means there could be some unrealized upside.

Always great for a local kid to get his shot. He also has position versatility, which helps.  I had no idea The Little Irish had a player at ND.  Aquinas is a great high school program.  

 

AQ had their own 20,000 seat stadium in Roch-Cha-Cha.......back in the 50's, they actually scheduled games against small college teams because  of zero competition at HS level......Rochester Jaycees brought the Bills here in 1967 and 1968 for exhibition games.......I saw the Pats and the Fins....still have the game programs..........

my dad went to AQ in the late 50s.  He would tell me of the thanksgiving games against boys town.  they had quite the program.

As a Canisius guy, they beat us down pretty good a few times when I played.  😞
