Passionate fans demand passionate players. Not for the money, nor the fame, but for the love of the game. And straight from the player’s mouth, that is exactly what the Philadelphia Eagles will get.
"“You’re getting a passionate player who loves football,” Jones said. “Couldn’t be happier than to be in the position I’m in right now. You’re getting a great football player, a great person, somebody who loves to compete, and who goes hard every time he steps on the field.”"

I watched his senior season at the University of Washington. He is all that and more. Now, don’t confuse that with a loose cannon. He is incredibly disciplined. He had one of the best college defensive back coaches in Coach Jimmy Lake.
That resulted not only in great play on his part, but also from the likes of teammates as well. The group played as one unit. They covered as intelligently as defensive backs can. But when they hit, they tackled with all the passion from the fans in the stands.
But even the most passionate player is subject to injury. Right now, that looms as the biggest question. When? And even moreso, will the recovery result in a player just as effective as the PAC-12 version?
