Then, Jones got injured, and he never recovered his spot in the starting lineup. Now, entering his third year in the NFL and with the team, Jones is battling for a roster spot and he knows it.
“Every year it’s a battle to get on the team, but the Giants have a great organization,” Jones recently told the Weyburn Review. “We’ve got a good battle for positions, and I look forward to competing for a place in the lineup again.”
Jones worked as the No. 2 center during Giants OTAs and minicamp — with the second-team offense — behind starter Weston Richburg. In the past, Jones has also worked at both guard spots. Jones’ versatility will give him a better chance of making the final 53-man roster.
Jones also talked about his transition from Canada, where he was named the CFL’s most dominant offensive lineman, to the NFL.
“When you get out on the field, you’re just trying to play football,” Jones said. “It’s nothing like I’ve ever experienced before, and I really enjoy it.”
Jones has the mindset that every Giants fan loves, and in a few weeks, he’ll have the opportunity to show everyone once again why he belongs on the roster.
