Yep, Jones basically announced that:

1) He was all about maximizing the contract he was signing that time around (fine).

2) That he wanted it to expire in 2 years so that he could be an UFA and sign his next big one.

3) Complete lack of any care whatsoever about the team he was signing with... which, again, is fine, but doesn't exactly make me care one way or the other if he's around.

Now, I kind of assume every player is conscious of this at some level (hope his agent tells him), but I assume for most they have enough tact (lack of stupidity) to not openly discuss this as they commence a two year deal paying them 5.5M dollars (which they don't deserve).
