Cardale Jones has great response to critic who questioned his career choices
Cardale Jones had a great response to a critic who questioned his career choices.
Jones played at Ohio State from 2013-2015 and shined while leading the team to the national championship in the 2014 season as a backup after JT Barrett suffered a broken ankle. Some argued Jones should have left for the NFL after that season, where there was buzz about him being a first-round pick. Instead, Jones returned to school for 2015 and played OK while splitting time with Barrett.
Jones ended up as a fourth-round pick in 2016 and spent time with the Bills and Chargers but never threw a regular season pass. He’s now joining the XFL, which led former NFL receiver Antonio Bryant to question Jones’ career choices. Bryant argued that Jones should have left school for the NFL money, but Jones says getting his degree was a choice he made and is happy with.
I went back to OSU to finish school. Something I worked as hard on as my football career. I’m my own man and think for myself. Going back benefited me & my family LONG term. Educate yourself on the situation before commenting and spreading the wrong message. https://t.co/G0i3kiP9iJ

That’s a great message for Jones to share. Maybe he would have had more money, but he wouldn’t have set himself up for long-term success in the league had he entered the draft after his sophomore season. And now he has his degree.
It’s ironic to see Jones advocate for college degrees especially considering the infamous tweet he sent several years ago.
