From 2008 to 2012, running back Felix Jones rushed for 2,728 yards and 11 touchdowns for the Dallas Cowboys. But he was let go after the 2012 season, spent last year with the Steelers--after spending training camp with the Eagles--and, at the moment, is out of the game.
Speaking at his annual Life Skills and Drills camp in Tulsa over the weekend, the former first round pick said he’s hopeful that he’ll get another opportunity in the NFL, and believes he can still contribute both on the field and in the locker room.
“I played the game for a few years,” Jones said, per the Tulsa World. “I kinda got the hang for what’s going on in the NFL at my position. I know I can teach younger guys. Obviously I still got some gas in my motor.”
While Jones has been enjoying spending more time with his family, he’s been working to stay in shape in hopes that some team will come calling.
“I know something is going to happen, I have a gut feeling,” Jones said. “I just have to stay prepared for it.”
