Rookie quarterback Cardale Jones hasn’t seen any action since preseason, but has found a way to stay busy so far this year.
One thing that Cardale Jones brings to the Buffalo Bills is personality and although we don’t hear a whole lot about him, he stays true to his roots.
Most recently, Jones was seen in a new Dr. Pepper commercial that also featured former Oakland Raiders running back Marcus Allen, current Houston Texans’ defensive tackle Vince Wilfork and fictional character Larry Culpepper.
Although Cardale Jones doesn’t say anything in the video, not much was expected with this being his first acting gig — as far as I’m concerned. You can view the video below:
The Buffalo Bills drafted Cardale Jones in the fourth round of this year’s draft and with Tyrod Taylor and E.J. Manuel on the roster, they quickly named him a project. We didn’t get to see a whole lot from him, but he did show off his ability in the preseason and actually looked like a decent quarterback.
Jones has a way of staying in the headlines, though. He’s active on Twitter and pretty much says what’s on his mind — especially when it comes to talking about college football.
Playing his college days at Ohio State University, Jones has remained loyal to his alma matter. After OSU’s tough loss to Penn State in Week 8, he took to Twitter to defend his old teammate and OSU starting quarterback, J.T. Barrett:
Coach Tom Herman was the co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the Bucks when Jones was on the team. Herman is now the head coach at Houston, but Cardale Jones wants him back before their tough matchup with rival Michigan.
With that game taking place just two days after Thanksgiving on Saturday, November 26th, I’m sure Cardale Jones will have a lot to say.
