Donnie Jones Considering NFL Comeback

Donnie Jones Considering NFL Comeback

Donnie Jones, the former punter of the Philadelphia Eagles, is considering an NFL comeback. Jones announced his retirement last February, but it looks like he is reconsidering his previous decision.

 

According to Ken Harris, agent of Donnie Jones, the punter asked his former team to release him from their reserve/retired list. The Philadelphia Eagles granted Jones’ wish, and he is now looking for potential teams. If he finds a new team, it will be Jones’ 15th season in the NFL.

 

Eagles’ All-Time Leader in Punting

 

When Jones left the Philadelphia Eagles, he was the all-time leader in gross and net punting averages. He was also the leader in punts inside the 20. He also held the team’s single-season record for punts inside the 20 and net punting average. His records earned him the nickname Donnie Longball. He played five seasons for the Eagles and won a Super Bowl in his last year with the franchise.

 

Jones, who will turn 38 in July, has played 208 games in a row, which is the third-longest streak in the National Football League. It looks like his run is not yet over. When he announced his retirement in February, he said that he was grateful for everyone who supported him throughout his NFL career. He thanked the Philadelphia Eagles organization for letting him be part of their family. He added that he would miss his coaches, friends, teammates, and fans.

 

As for the Philadelphia Eagles, second-year player Cameron Johnston could be the next punter for the team. However, there is a chance that they will look for someone else to fill the shoes of Donnie Jones.
