I’m my own man and think for myself. Going back benefited me & my family LONG term. Educate yourself on the situation before commenting and spreading the wrong message.”I went back to OSU to finish school. Something I worked as hard on as my football career.

However, kudos to Jones for standing up for himself and being comfortable in the choice he made.The 27-year-old signal caller is a long way from not going to Ohio State to “play school.” ARLINGTON, TX – JANUARY 12: Quarterback Cardale Jones #12 of the Ohio State Buckeyes celebrates after scoring a one yard touchdown in the second quarter against the Oregon Ducks during the College Football Playoff National Championship Game at AT&T Stadium on January 12, 2015 in Arlington, Texas. (Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)Yesterday, the XFL announced that former Ohio State star Cardale Jones would be one of the eight quarterbacks headlining the fledgling league. Jones was assigned to the D.C. Defenders.It has been a whirlwind few years for Jones. After coming off the bench to lead OSU to a national championship in 2014, he made the somewhat surprising decision to return to school.Projected as a likely top pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, Jones instead struggled at Ohio State that fall. When he was finally selected in 2016, it wasn’t until the fourth round.Now, Jones is out of the NFL and trying to find his footing in a different league. Former NFL wide receiver Antonio Bryant tried to use Jones as a cautionary tale on Twitter yesterday.
