    Apparently has done his once a week social media stint complaining about not getting looks, etc. Also complaining about other stuff. You know, if he feels like this then I can't wait to see him leave. Didn't he drop a TD yesterday?

    He's not even contributing this season so no loss there.

    Cannot figure him out. Others will soon pass him and sad thing is he’s very talented.

    With that attitude, I don’t see his role increasing. It’s a tough lesson to learn and hopefully he will get it - soon.

    He does seem to vent on twitter a lot. Would love to see him break out but tough to get looks with all the weapons we have

    A 5 star WR thinking he needs more targets is a huge surprise, not. He probably should get a few more targets per game with as many passes that are being thrown. However, it's a team sport and he needs to remember that. We have 4 WRs in the NFL from last season who remembered the team comes first. Jacob can do it too.

    This year Pitts, Toney and Grimes will be NFL bound.
    After that should be Cope. Gotta be patient.

    He was targeted 5 times, but 0 receptions. He was very well covered, as was Toney as was Pitts, as was Grimes. Others made the most of it and caught the passes.

    the RBs were ignored and had huge space (as were Gamble and Zipperer). Can’t cover them all...

    My son said he is venting on Snapchat live. Apparently among his complaints were they are not using Toney right. Additionally said they did not use Jefferson right last year and if they had used him right he would have been a first round draft pick.

    Doesn’t always run crisp routes... easier to keep covered up. Kind of like KT last year. Amazing athlete but hasn’t learned to do the little things yet. IF he dedicates himself to the little things he will be far more effective as a WR.

    I’m positive Copeland knows more than the coaches....especially an offensive genius like Mullen

    If he is not happy, nothing is keeping him here. There is always another one just as hungry behind you. Shorter, Whittemore and Henderson would love to see more playing time.

    He’s got to be going against like the 3rd best corner or a safety/linebacker since Toney and Pitts and Grimes are ahead of him. But yet he still never get open. Every throw to him is contested. He probably should look inward.

    If this is true then good riddance. He was targeted multiple times in 5 games. His problem is he's not catching most of the balls thrown his way. To be fair I have not seen these rumors. I hope they're not true.

    When the ball comes your way, make a play. More often than not, he doesn't make the play. Needs to look inward, instead of outward.

    Catch the balls that hit you and you would have scored yesterday. Wish him success but improving his route running and getting separation on his breaks will get him drafted quicker than transferring.

    I'm curious on his criticisms. How does he think the staff ought to use KT, and should have used Jefferson?

    His whole recruitment was “hey look at me”. He decommited from the Gators started flirting with Tennessee to the point I thought he was Tennessee bound. Then he flipped back to us. So not surprised by any of it.
