Jones On The Reaction To Getting Drafted By The Broncos

“It’s just been incredible. My phone is going crazy. It means so much to me that I get to stay here and play for the Broncos and the team I grew up rooting for and in a state that I love. It’s just incredible.”

Jones (joking) about getting his own place or moving back home: “I know my mom would like it, but I think I’ll get my own place.”
