Jones Possesses Amazing NFL Stat
Perhaps the biggest argument for the Lions bringing Jones back has been his consistent production through the years. Arguably, he has one of the most insane stats going in the NFL. In his entire career, Jones has never fumbled the football, and yet has remained one of the most productive wideouts in the league.

Now that Jones is heading to the Jaguars, the team will be gaining a very contentious player who strives to do the right thing and is a solid teammate who produces in an amazing way as well.
