William Augustus "Dub" Jones (born December 29, 1924 in Arcadia, Louisiana) is a former American football running back who played ten seasons with the Cleveland Browns and the Miami Seahawks from 1950 to 1955 in the National Football League and the old All-America Football Conference.

Jones played college football at Tulane University and was drafted in the first round of the 1946 NFL Draft by the Chicago Cardinals and played for the Miami Seahawks of the AAFC before coming to the Browns before the 1948 NFL season.

Jones was a one time Pro Bowler in 1951, a season in which he had 104 rushing carries for 492 yards, and 30 receptions for 570 yards and 12 touchdowns. Jones is best known for having six touchdowns in a single game against the Chicago Bears, an NFL record that is tied only by Ernie Nevers and Gale Sayers.
