Instead -- like his cornerback -- Jones has gotten burned.
After giving up a first- and second-round pick to get Claiborne, Jones admitted Tuesday he hasn't gotten the shutdown corner he desired.
"Is he what we had hoped for at this point when we drafted him with the sixth overall pick, giving up the (second-round) pick to go up to the sixth pick to get him? No," Jones said on KRLD-FM, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "But he's going to be a good player."
Unfortunately for Jones, Claiborne rarely shows flashes that he's "going to be a good player."
