At 6’9” tall, it’s no wonder Ed Jones earned the nickname “Too Tall” as a defensive lineman in the National Football League. Despite only playing three football games in high school and receiving numerous Div. 1 offers for basketball and numerous offers to play baseball in the MLB, Jones went to Tennessee State University where he eventually focused on football full time. Jones definitely made the right career decision as he was named to consecutive All-American teams and helped Tennessee State win consecutive national championships. “Too Tall” Jones then went on to play 15 seasons in the NFL, all with the Dallas Cowboys as a part of the famed “Doomsday Defense”. After 5 successful seasons with the Cowboys including a Super Bowl win in 1977, Jones left the NFL to try a career as a professional boxer. Over his boxing career which spanned just a few months, Jones won 6 bouts, 5 by knockout, before returning to the NFL without ever giving his reasons. Jones played for the next 10 seasons with the Cowboys and has the franchise record for games played with 232, never missing a game. Playing most of his career during an era where most defensive stats weren’t recorded, Jones is still considered one of the most dominant defensive ends in League history.
