The Atlanta Falcons added a new assistant college scouting director, hiring Dwaune Jones on Monday to work under new general manager Terry Fontenot.

Jones previously served as a college scout for the Baltimore Ravens from 2017-2020. Prior to that, he worked in the New Orleans Saints’ scouting department for over a decade. Fontenot praised Smith’s drive for the game.

“Dwaune has an incredible drive and knowledge of our game fueled by his extensive experience in the field as a scout,” said Fontenot, per the team’s official website.

Once a highly-productive college receiver at Richmond, Jones signed as an undrafted free agent with the Cleveland Browns and Seattle Seahawks in 2000. He spent time on different practice squads before getting a shot in NFL Europe. Later, Jones served as a wide receivers coach for the Cologne Centurions in 2004.
