“After 14 seasons in the NFL, I have decided to retire so that I can spend more time with my family,” said Jones, per the Eagles. “I am grateful for all those who have supported me throughout the years.

I will truly miss my teammates, coaches, friends and the best fans in the NFL. Although I am retiring, I will always be an Eagle and will forever have a special place in my heart for the city of Philadelphia. It is a great honor to be a part of the first Super Bowl championship team in Eagles history and there is no better way to finish my career.”
