After 17 seasons, Chris Jones’ time in the Canadian Football League has come to an end.
Always regarded as one of the CFL’s brightest and boldest personalities, Jones won four Grey Cups with four different teams and, most recently, helped transform the Riders from last-place team to perennial contender.
As Jones heads south of the border, we thought we would remember the time the Grey Cup paid him a visit in his hometown of South Pittsburg, Tenn.:
A little BBQ, some southern breakfast — the Grey Cup got to see a little bit of everything on that trip.
Thanks for the memories, Chris Jones! We’ll be cheering for you.
