After winning the Super Bowl you would think that the Baltimore Ravens would approach the 2013 training camp ready to defend their title. Some of the players must not have gotten the memo heading into the pre camp conditioning tests. On Monday, wide receiver and return specialist, Jacoby Jones failed his conditioning test at Under Armour Performance Center in Owings Mills, Maryland.
Jones shined last season in the playoffs and more specifically the Super Bowl and should have been named the MVP of the Super Bowl. With Jones failing the conditioning test, he will be placed on the non-football injury (NFI) list until he passes the conditioning test.
Baltimore Ravens’ fans should be concerned because Jones is slated to be the #2 wide receiver on the team this season. He struggled with his #2 responsibilities while a member of the Houston Texans, as to why he was left to leave as a free agent. Jones has the ability to be a playmaker on offense, but with the lack of drive and gumption you have to wonder if Jacoby Jones can mature and be that guy. This Super Bowl defense run should be one heck of a ride in Baltimore this season and the question is will they successfully defend their title?
