Chandler Jones Press Conference: Former SU Defensive End Joins New England Patriots

During his introductory press conference on Friday as a member of the New England Patriots, former Syracuse defensive end Chandler Jones described the moment the Patriots made him the 21st pick of the 2012 NFL Draft this way:

“I didn’t know if I was going to laugh, didn’t know if I was going to cry, didn’t know if I was going to faint,” Jones said. But if you guys watched the pick on TV, I was smiling from ear-to-ear. You guys can tell, I’m really happy to be here, really."

Jones told the New England media that he has no idea what to expect from Bill Belichick and the Patriots.

“I have no expectations as far as what’s going to happen to me at this level. I was told about it – my brother plays for the Ravens – but I really don’t know until I get out there,” Jones said. “As far as me being a rookie, my job right now is to know my role. Take whatever I can from whoever.”
