Matt Jones completes drug court in Fayetteville

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Former Arkansas Razorback quarterback Matt Jones has completed his stint in drug court.

Jones was arrested in 2008 on suspicion of cocaine possession, and as part of a plea agreement was ordered to participate in NFL-sponsored substance-abuse counseling and undergo random drug testing through the end of the football season.

The Jacksonville Jaguars released Jones in March after he failed a drug and alcohol test. Jones said at the time he'd had beers while golfing with friends.

Jones "graduated" from Washington County Drug Court on Monday and his felony cocaine possession charge was dismissed.

Jones says he's learned from his mistakes and that he's hoping an NFL team will make an offer.
