EXTRA POINTS
  • Chris Jones had an early introduction to failure in the NFL. Taken behind 37 other defensive linemen in the 2013 NFL Draft, he was cut by two teams over a span of just 11 days. After selecting him in the sixth round with the 198th overall pick, the Houston Texans cut Jones on Aug. 31. Jones signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sept. 1 but lasted only 10 days, as the Buccaneers released him on Sept. 10. Rather than be deterred by these early disappointments, Jones maintained a positive outlook when he signed with the Patriots on Sept. 11, and it has paid off in a big way. Thrust into a starting role after key injuries to the defensive line, Jones finished his rookie season with six sacks. Jones’ sudden success may come as a surprise to some, but not to Dave Clawson, Jones’ college coach at Bowling Green. Jones was part of Clawson’s first recruiting class and blossomed into an All-American and two-two time captain for the Falcons.

    “It’s hard to talk about Chris without getting a little bit emotional,” Clawson told The Boston Herald, “because he was that special of a player and person in our program.”
