Miami Dolphins Player Gives Grim Outlook Of Life In NFL

Written by Tony Ghaul

Miami Dolphins cornerback Byron Jones responded to a 2015 tweet from the NFL calling him “Mr. Broad Jump” ahead of that year’s draft.

Jones responded with the following tweet.

He also shares a warning to current NFL players.

The former first-round pick of the Dallas Cowboys in the 2015 draft, sat out the entire 2022 season after offseason surgery to address ankle and Achilles issues, and has also dealt with knee issues in the past. He spent the whole year on the reserve/PUP (physically unable to perform) list.

Jones signed a five-year, $82 million deal in 2020. He represents an $18.3 million cap hit in 2023, but the Dolphins can save $13.6 million by releasing or trading him after June 1.

Jones made the Pro Bowl in 2018 and has 57 pass deflections and four interceptions in his eight-year career.
