What happened to Byron Jones 

Miami Dolphins cornerback Byron Jones shared a video graphic about his NFL combine performance with two strong messages Saturday.

The 2015 GIF offered comparisons to convey just how impressive the former UConn standout’s 12’3″ broad jump really was.

Jones, 30, missed the entirety of the 2022 season after being placed on the physically unable to perform list. An offseason Achilles surgery prevented him from passing a physical to return to the Dolphins.

He was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys and finished his rookie season with 67 combined tackles and nine pass deflections through 11 starts in 16 games. He signed a five-year, $82 million contract with the Dolphins in 2020.

To date, Jones has recorded four interceptions, 444 combined tackles, three quarterback hits, 11 tackles for loss, four forced fumbles and 57 pass deflections across 109 career games for the Cowboys and Dolphins.

“Much has changed in 8 years,” Jones wrote on Twitter. “Today I can’t run or jump because of my injuries sustained playing this game. DO NOT take the pills they give you. DO NOT take the injections they give you. If you absolutely must, consult an outside doctor to learn the long-term implications.

“It was an honor and privilege to play in the NFL but it came at a regrettable cost I did not foresee. In my opinion, no amount of professional success or financial gain is worth avoidable chronic pain and disabilities. Godspeed to the draft class of 2023.”

Jones, 30, underwent surgery in March to clean up a lingering injury he dealt with during the 2021 season. A source told ESPN at the time that Jones was expected to be ready for training camp in July, but he was never activated off the PUP list.
