The NFL is a tough ordeal, especially for players.
Teams won’t hesitate to cut them if they are not performing to expectations.
With so much talent available, some positions in the 53-man roster may look like a revolving door because of the constant change.
The pro game is a different beast that there are talented individuals who get devoured by the bright lights.
One of those athletes is former Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Cardale Jones who spent just three seasons in the NFL.
After being drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the fourth round of the 2016 draft, he spent two seasons with the then-San Diego Chargers but never played a game.
The Seattle Seahawks were his last NFL stop so far, but he never made the main roster.
In 2020, he suited up for the XFL’s DC Defenders and played five games until the league folded.
Two years after his last competitive football stint, Jones gets to reintroduce himself to the NFL, as shared by NFL Network’s Stacey Dales.

Dales said, “At @OhioStateFB Pro Day today where Buckeyes starting QB CJ Stroud and former Buckeyes QB Cardale Jones will be throwing to top NFL receiver prospects Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave.”
Of course, Olave and Wilson are the focal points of the session.
However, Jones can turn a few heads by making some great passes.
Jones’ Achievements At Ohio State
The Ohio native led his hometown team to the national championship in 2015, defeating Oregon 42-20.
That turned out to be his final year in Columbus and he finished the season with 1,460 yards and eight touchdowns.
He also added two rushing touchdowns for 193 yards on the ground.
However, he only played one NFL game in three seasons, finishing with 96 yards and an interception.
