    Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Matt Jones, who served a three-game suspension at the end of the2008 season, was arrested Monday evening in Washington County, Arkansas, and charged with possession of a controlled substance.

    The arrest, confirmed by deputy R. Hatcher of the Washington County police department, came at 6:21 p.m. in the same county in which Jones was arrested lastyear on a similar charge.

    Jones was the Jaguars' leading receiver with 65 catches and 761 yards despite the suspension under the league's personal conduct policy. Thatsuspension came after a failed appeal and was the result of a violation of the league's substance abuse policy.

    Jones was arrested and charged with one count of cocaine possession on July 10, 2008, when a Fayetteville police officer saw him inside a parked carallegedly cutting up cocaine with a credit card. The charge carried a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Jones pleaded not guilty andlater reached agreement with prosecutor John Threet's office to send the case to drug court.

    On Oct. 13, a judge accepted Jones into a drug treatment program that could erase the felony cocaine charge against the former Arkansas star. The formerRazorbacks quarterback was ordered to participate in NFL-sponsored substance-abuse counseling and random drug testing through the end of the football season,then return to Fayetteville to complete the intervention program, Judge Mary Ann Gunn said.

    Gunn, who presides over the Washington County Drug Court, said at the time Jones could be bounced from the program if he failed a drug test or missed acounseling session. Jones said in court that he was "very committed" to completing the program and said he had passed random NFL-administered drugtests since his July 10 arrest.

    The quarterback-turned-wide receiver stood with his parents in Gunn's courtroom, which was filled with drug offenders and treatment program graduates.He said he wanted to enter Gunn's program because "I want to make sure it doesn't happen again."

    Monday's arrest could affect his agreement on last year's charge and also lead to further penalties from the NFL.

    Dude has been one of my favorites ever since we drafted him and finally stepped his game up next year. It's a damn shame that he couldn't get his acttogether.

    I hope the rumors about us trading for Calvin Johnson are true, especially after this incident...
