Gary Kubiak leaves door open for Dwight Jones to return

Posted by Nick Scurfield on May 30, 2012 – 5:33 pm

A day after rookie wide receiver Dwight Jones was a no-show at practice amid reports he had quit the team, Texans coach Gary Kubiak left the door open for him to return.

Kubiak was asked if any other receivers were absent on Wednesday aside from Jones, an undrafted free agent from North Carolina.

“Nobody quit (today),” Kubiak said, cracking a smile. “No, that’s tough. I talked to him (Jones) a couple times, and he had a good college career and he’s a talented young man. It’s a grind. It’s tough out here. Hopefully, he’ll get home and things will feel a little better about it and he’ll come back and give it another try someday. He’s a very good athlete.”

It’s uncommon for a player to up and quit (I can’t recall seeing it in the five-plus years I’ve been with the Texans), and it would seem even more peculiar for that player to reverse course and come back. Either way, it was a classy move by Kubiak to extend the olive branch during his post-practice meeting with the media.

As of now, Jones is still on the Texans’ roster. We’ll report back with any updates in the coming days and weeks.

    I know its got to be hard to got from top at your school to nothing in the NFL. But how many would have just loved a chance that he got, and is given. He has got to look as if Arian can do it from being undrafted than he can too, unless he truly doesn’t love the game or want this chance, But he will always regret it in the later years, if he doesn’t return.

    Andre Johnson wouldn’t have quit. (sarcasm) Maybe it’s the heat… Maybe the competition is too deep at that position..which would say something about his competitiveness…. or like you said Jay, maybe he just doesn’t bleed football. I’m sure there are plenty of UDFA’s sitting out there saying, ‘I’ll take his spot’.

    ……maybe he would rather get a job with his college degree and save his body… maybe he won the power ball and is filthy rich… maybe his ol’ lady told him to quit… maybe he could take getting teased about be called the next Andre Johnson… ok. I’ll quit. lmao.

    Wasn’t he the one self proclaiming he’s the 2nd coming of AJ? It’s always the loudest ones that end up being… like Ochocinco. We don’t need that on OUR team. Kube definitely sees something in this kid, though. Hopefully he can go home, work at McDonald’s for a year and mature a little, and come back next year ready to be part of a team.

    You don’t work your whole life,including little league,to college,and now to the pro’s to just quit. The opportunity is a one in a million shot! Don’t give up now, put in the work and you’ll see the results. Maybe he will see he is truly blessed with this gift and return.
