The undersized Jones won't step into a three down role from the start, but he should help improve Atlanta's coverage of opposing tight ends. He could earn a more prominent role with an impressive preseason or if injuries strike, but for now he's likely pegged for rotational work, a modest tackle total and hopefully a couple of forced fumbles or interceptions.
