NFL News: Christian Jones Looks Like a Steal for Bears
Following a stellar career at Florida State, Christian Jones was projected to go as high as the 2nd or 3rd round in the NFL Draft…but things did not go as planned for the former Seminole star. Jones went undrafted and eventually signed with the Chicago Bears as an undrafted free agent.
Jones’ stock plummeted after it was revealed that he had a diluted drug test during the NFL Combine.
But now, at Bears training camp, Jones is standing out with his athletic play at linebacker. Jones has looked so good, that it would be rather shocking if he did not land on the 53-man roster.
He’s showing he deserves the opportunity to work and practice, and it’s fun to see because he’s coming from a long way to put himself in this position,” Trestman said. “The athleticism is there. The explosiveness is there. The burst is there. The physicality is there. It’s evident that he’ll play that way. It’s just the learning process; there’s just so much for a young guy to know.” –Marc Trestman, ESPN Chicago.
