Velus Jones, a Bears receiver, is 25. This is a very old number by NFL rookie standards. It is young in comparison with the rest of the population.
He's starting to feel his age as he prepares for his NFL career. He feels compelled to say that it's not a problem.
Jones said that people talk about it but it doesn't matter. Jones spoke out recently on The Sick Podcast via NFL.com. "I am a baller at end of the day. I know what I can accomplish. I'm 25 years old and that won't stop me running past people to score touchdowns or stuff like this. I will be strong and fast for a very long time. It's irrelevant.
Jones stated, "Through that whole process, it wasn’t for nothing." "I received an undergraduate degree from USC, and also received a master's degree. I took full advantage. I also learned how to do it well. I wouldn't change anything if I could go back and make it right.
He also considers his tires to have the most tread.
Jones stated that Jones had never suffered any serious injuries during college. Jones said that the only injuries I suffered were a boxing fracture or a high ankle strain. I have never broken a bone and had no surgery. I am a 21- or 22-year old with a body that is almost identical to a baby horse. There are some guys who sustained a lot of injuries during college, and you know they will take punishment in the NFL. But, I'm as healthy as a baby horse. I am as healthy as can be. It really doesn't matter, people will talk about it. They can only control what they can see, so I'm not able to control it.
Due to the lack of high-end weapons within the Chicago offense (the receiver area includes Equanimeous St. Brown and Darnell Mooney as well as Tajae Sharpe and Dante Pettis), Jones should be able to get the ball rolling -- along with his 25-year old "baby horse" legs.
