Moonshine heading to Nashville?

Free-agent receiver Matt Jones, ignored for months on the free-agent market, could soon have a new NFL home.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Jones will be working out for the Titans on Thursday.
The Cowboys and the Bears also have expressed an interest in the converted quarterback, who was a first-round draft pick in 2005.
"This is moving quickly," agent Alan Herman said Wednesday, apparently after waking up from a nap that began when Jones was released by the Jaguars on March 16. "We're ready to go and get a deal done, and we're optimistic we will. Matt is in outstanding shape, he's ready to go, and we think Tennessee would be a great fit."
Coincidentally, Titans coach Jeff Fisher recently disputed a report from Schefter that the team had contacted Marvin Harrison. The fact that the Titans are bringing in Jones seems to indicate that, at a minimum, the Titans would have put out a feeler for Harrison.
