Matt Jones' tenure as a Jacksonville Jaguar has come to an end, according to a published report. From ESPN.com:

The Jacksonville Jaguars have released receiver Matt Jones, an NFL source told ESPN's Chris Mortensen on Monday.

The former Arkansas player was charged with cocaine possession in July.

He was suspended for the last three games of the 2008 season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. In a plea deal, Jones entered a program that emphasizes treatment.

Jones was released a day early from jail Saturday during a weeklong stay for drinking beer in violation of his plea agreement for the drug charge.
