Reshad Jones and T.J. McDonald are so similar in skill set as both are of the hard hitting type. For the past two yeas, fans have witnessed constant breakdowns in the secondary and that may be because of the safeties. Both players are good safeties, but they just don’t mesh together well and that has led to speculation that a trade is possible.
