T.J. JONES RUMORS & GOSSIP
TJ Jones of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish almost had a touchdown against Rutgers except he decided to get tackled by… air.

This past summer, Notre Dame’s top receiver made headlines by swimming with sharks. But TJ Jones, now a captain for the Fighting Irish, wasn’t just going for a a wild dip on vacation; he’s very much interested in a professional career as a marine diver.

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly believes receiver TJ Jones can be a whole lot more than an outstanding route runner.
Kelly raised eyebrows with bold statements about Jones during training camp, predicting he would not only emerge as the go-to guy for the 14th-ranked Fighting Irish (1-0), but predicting the 5-11, 194-pound senior will follow in the footsteps of Tyler Eifert and Michael...

“I’ve always had an interest...

Notre Dame wide receiver T.J. Jones has plenty on his mind as he prepares for the talented Alabama secondary he'll face in the BCS championship game Jan. 7 in Miami.
Still, he can't help thinking about his late father, Andre, who died in June 2011 at age 42 after suffering a brain aneurysm. The elder Jones played on Notre Dame's 1988 national championship team, and T...
