Matt Jones' agent asks for his client's release

Pro Football Talk is reporting Washington Redskins running back Matt Jones' agent, Hadley Engelhard, asked for his client's release Wednesday. “Let’s move on,” Engelhard said via Pro Football Talk. “We’re hoping [team president Bruce Allen] sees the light and does the gentleman thing and release Matt. … He’s a healthy scratch. All the writing’s on the wall that he’s going to be released. Is Bruce waiting for a team to have a devastating injury that’s in dire straits to make a trade? I guess you can do that. But you’re messing with someone’s mind, for lack of a better term.”

Fantasy Impact

Although Jones showed up to the team's mandatory workouts this week, reports suggest he only attended to avoid fines. In a not too shocking turn of events Wednesday, the 24-year-old running back's agent requested his client's release from the team with the hopes of catching on with a new club before the start of training camp. Jones, who was a healthy scratch for the final nine games of the 2016 season, is unlikely to remain with the Redskins for 2017. It's just of a matter of when the team will elect to move on from him.
