Jones is a popular wide receiver with a decent NFL track record. The veteran rejoined the Detroit Lions in 2023 after a short spell in Jacksonville. Many football players think that life will be easy after they make it to the pro level. But Jones will tell them that heartbreak can be around the corner.
The father-of-six lost his youngest son Marlo when the baby was just six months old. Naturally, this tragedy had a profound impact on Jones. No parent thinks that they’ll outlive their children and losing an infant was heartbreaking. He rebounded from this cataclysmic event but he’ll never forget it (via NBC Sports).
