Not surprised. I always suspected Jones as well.
Over one winter, he came into spring camp absolutely huge, and was bragging about how much his bench press went up. I remember as a kid, how he talked about what an "Awesome" workout routine he had over the offseason. Then later in his career, he blamed the extra bulk for his many injuries.
It just seems to fit the profile too much. I have no proof obviously.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
