Perhaps you've read the Buffalo Bills could use an upgrade at the No. 2 receiver position.
Donald Jones has, too.
And it hasn't sat well with the third-year pro.
"You start to see things like, 'They need to draft a receiver.' You see all of those things," Jones said after practice Tuesday. "As a man, as a competitor, I'm out to prove everybody wrong. It definitely fuels me."
It's easy to forget Jones won the No. 2 job last year opposite Stevie Johnson. He had a big impact in Buffalo's memorable Week Three win against New England, with a five-catch, 101-yard game.
That was the highlight of Jones' season, though. A left high ankle sprain, an injury he actually suffered twice, basically ruined his year. The Bills never could find a suitable replacement, trying C.J. Spiller, Brad Smith and Derek Hagan at times.
Jones is healthy now -- and determined to get his spot back.
"I feel like I have something to prove every season, but definitely this year," he said. "... In my eyes I am the No. 2 receiver. I'll conduct myself in that manner."
