This isn’t the first time Jones has been on a football field away from the NFL. Jones had been a wide receiver coach at Calvert Hall College High School in Towson MD, since October.
During his time in the NFL with the Ravens, Jacoby Jones had made some spectacular plays that went down in NFL history. It was Jones who had the game-tying 70-yard touchdown catch from Joe Flacco in the 2012 AFC divisional round of the playoffs. That play would forever be cemented in lure as the Mile High Miracle.
The Baltimore Ravens would go on to win the Super Bowl that season. In the big game, Jones had a touchdown catch and a 108-yard kickoff return for a touchdown that remains the longest in Super Bowl history. Jones also holds the most all-purpose yards in a Super Bowl with 288.
This isn’t the first time Jones made the news recently. Jones had the opportunity to announce the Baltimore Ravens’ first third-round pick at the 2021 NFL Draft. With the event held in Cleveland, Jones received some boos from the crowd. Naturally, he took the opportunity to troll those back in attendance.
Jones and the Bears are set to begin their season at home against the Towson University Tigers on September 4, 2021.
