Jones has been the Falcons leader since the day he was drafted back in 2016 out of LSU. He made an instant impact on their team compiling 106 tackles and three interceptions. Jones was a major component to their Super Bowl LI run that season.
He battled injuries last season but still finished with 53 tackles and two interceptions in six starts. Jones was also a Pro Bowler back in 2017 after a stellar season (138 tackles, 10 TFL) in which the Falcons made their last playoff appearance.
