The Championship tour of the Tennessee Titans continues

Jones reportedly stated, “I’ve come so close several times, whether it was from high school to college to the professionals.” “I am certain that we can get it done here.” I have faith in the coach [Mike Vrabel] and the organisation. And I’m hoping to win.

No one can say he has not done his part to get one by now.

In all, just 10 players from that draft class have at least 150 regular-season appearances to their credit. That group includes quarterback Russell Wilson and safety Bobby Wagner, who won a Super Bowl with Seattle, and defensive lineman Fletcher Cox, who won one with Philadelphia. Additionally, defensive lineman Michael Brockers and kicker Greg Zuerlein were with the Los Angeles Rams when they lost Super Bowl LIII to New England.

Among all players drafted in 2012, Jones is tied with linebacker Demario Davis for the most games played in the regular season with 160 – out of a possible 161 (Jones missed one game in 2019 due to a concussion). He has been a part of six playoff teams (two with Houston, four with Tennessee) and has logged another 10 postseason contests, twice as many as Davis.

Story Highlights

  • As he prepares for his 11th NFL season, and his seventh as the Tennessee Titans’ starting center, he has one goal in mind: to win a title. But his title quest began before he was drafted in the fourth round of the 2012 draught.

  • “It will be that much more special to me to do it the right way and end my career in Tennessee winning a championship.”
