Back from injury and with new contract, DaQuan Jones determined to balance his game

TicketsBar2NASHVILLE, Tenn. – DaQuan Jones got a big contract even as he stuck to the sidelines during team work this spring.

He got a three-year, $21 million deal with $4million as a signing bonus and $14 million guaranteed.

That’s quite a financial commitment and he said he’s thankful for the show of faith.IMG 2635

Jones took a while to get going in 2017, but was playing his best ball when he suffered a season-ending biceps injury on Dec. 3 against Houston.

He said it was precautionary that he was only doing a bit during OTAs.

“I just know how hard I worked on it last year improving the pass rushing part of my game,” he said. “Going into this year I feel a little behind the 8-ball because I was out for so much longer. I feel these first couple days of training camp have really helped me out, gotten me back into the speed of football.

“Right now I work on hands and pad level, getting back into the swing of that.”
