His career began when he was drafted out of Syracuse University in the first round of the 1998 NFL Draft by the Patriots. He is probably best known for his role on the 2001 New England Patriots team that won Super Bowl XXXVI (he picked up a Kurt Warner fumble in the fourth quarter and raced 97 yards for an apparent touchdown, only to have the play reversed on a holding call). He has also played for the Miami Dolphins and the New Orleans Saints. Jones currently resides in Farmington, Connecticut. He is also now the Defensive Backs Coach for the New Britain Golden Hurricanes, his former high school team.
