Former Northwestern wide receiver Tony Jones has agreed to sign with the Washington professional football team as an undrafted free agent, according to a report from Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.

Jones had an up-and-down career at Northwestern. His career stats were underwhelming, but when the offense opened up and allowed him to use his speed, he was a real threat on the outside. However, his senior season was marred by an ankle injury, and when he played he was not at 100 percent.

When he is healthy, Jones is a burner. When Northwestern's offense was at its best in 2012 and 2013, Jones was a threat to beat opponents down the field, and his speed often helped open underneath routes. However, his hands are shaky, and he's neither big (5-foot-11) nor very physical.
