Former Tennessee wide receiver Gerald Jones has agreed to a contract with the Philadelphia Eagles. A team-high 55 receptions in 2010 made Jones just the fifth receiver to lead the Vols in catches in three consecutive seasons. He was the first to do so since Joey Kent in 1994-96.
Jones finished fifth on UT's career receptions list with 142 and 11th in receiving TDs with 13. Compiling 1,710 career receiving yards, he was just 37 short of reaching the top 10 in that category.
